Dick Johnson's Famous Garlic Prawns

Recently we were lucky enough to interview Australian motor racing legend and avid fisherman, Dick Johnson.

 Johnson has claimed over twenty awards and honors including the V8 Supercar Hall of Fame into which he was inducted in 2001, but some of his greatest prizes have been on water (including a 950 pound marlinhe caught off Port Douglas he proudly told us about).

During the interview, Dick was also kind enough to tell us about his favourite seafood recipe, entitled (perhaps a little tongue in cheek), Dick Johnson's Famous Garlic Prawns!


1 kg green prawns
1 onion (chopped)
1 clove of garlic (slivered)
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp cognac
300ml cream
2 tbsp butter
Parsley (chopped)


Peel prawns and de-vein.

Cook green prawns in pan with butter.  Remove prawns and set aside.
Add chopped onions, slivered garlic and crushed garlic to remaining butter and liquid in pan.  Do not burn.
Add salt, cognac and cream and boil rapidly for about 5 minutes, stirring all the time.

Add cooked prawns and do not overcook.  Cook only for about 1 minute.

Add chopped parsley.

Serve with steamed rice.
