Now that my little boy eats bread almost every day I decided to start making my own at home as I can't help thinking about the amount of salt and preservatives in bread that I buy in supermarkets.  I wanted a recipe that was quick and easy to follow so I used Nessa Robin's brown bread recipe. I made the bread mix within 5 minutes and then just put it in the oven. Nessa has a blog called Nessa's family Kitchen ( and it's one of my favourite blogs. Next month she will release her first cookbook called Apron Strings which I'm looking forward to buying.

Here's my recipe for garlic prawns which go really well with brown bread and a wedge of lemon. 
4 large garlic cloves (peeled and finely diced)
10 king prawns

Soya sauce
Vegetable oil for frying
Few lemon wedges

1. Heat vegetable oil on a non-stick frying pan on medium/ high heat.

2. Add the garlic and fry until you start to get a nice smell from the garlic (do not fry until the garlic turns brown).
3. Toss the prawns onto the frying pan and lightly season with pepper.

4. Once the prawns are cooked drizzle a little soya sauce over the prawns and then take the frying pan off the heat and stir.

5. Place on a serving dish with a wedge of lemon and some brown bread. 

If you are lucky enough to have large king prawns for this recipe then you may need to add a little more garlic as I used medium sized prawns for this recipe. It really depends on how much you love garlic!


  1. Hey i like that idea brown bread and garlic prawns. Didn't try before but this seems pretty interesting. Medium size is ok for me :)

  2. Prawns with brown bread is actually very popular over here. You should try it!
