Here's a quick Asian dinner for when you don't have enough time at hand but want a home cooked meal! These Honey Chilli Garlic Tiger Prawns take just 5 ingredients and 8 minutes to get ready! They are not saucy or soupy but have enough at the bottom to coat your rice or noodles!
Are you kidding me? This is my answer to all those times when it was much easier to pick up the phone and order in pizza instead. I'm talking 5 ingredients in these insanely delicious Honey Chilli Garlic Tiger Prawns and exactly 8 minutes to make them!
I think you are going to be seeing quite a few of these 5 ingredient/ 15 minute/ under 30 minute/ one pan meal kinda business around here in the future. You see this month is just busy busy busy. We are moving houses which means first searching for a house, finding 'the one' and then packing all of the 152 boxes that I know we are going to have, to move!
In between all of this, we are also attending Denver's cousins wedding so yaaaaaaay quick party and then we are back!
Guys these prawns are crazy delicious! And they only need a sprinkle of this and a spoonful of that, and before you can say tiger prawns they are ready! It's a classic combination for seafood - honey, chilli flakes and garlic! I threw in some snow peas right towards the end so that they could just sizzle a bit and not get all squishy. But you can totally add whatever vegetable works for you. I love adding broccoli, mushrooms, even beans or bok choy. Anything green is the best!
They are not so much soupy or saucy. But there is enough at the bottom of the pan to just coat your noodles or rice slightly. This can't be categorized as Thai or Chinese or Korean. I think it's just a simple Asian stir fry that is so perfect for quick dinners when you want something satisfyingly homemade but don't have enough time to cook dinner!

5 Ingredient Honey Chilli Garlic Tiger Prawns
- 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
- 500 grams Prawns Tiger , cleaned and deveined
- ¾ teaspoon Chili Flakes
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Paste
- 1 tablespoon Honey
- 1 cup Peas Snow
- Salt to taste
- Add tiger prawns to a bowl and add chili flakes and garlic paste to them. Mix and let them sit for 5 minutes while you prepare your snow peas or any other vegetable you are using.
- Heat oil in a skillet or pan and add the tiger prawns. Stir fry them for 4-5 minutes and add honey, 3 tablespoons water, snow peas and salt. Because of the honey, it should start becoming a little saucy. Switch off the flame after a minute or two, just as soon as the snow peas look slightly steamed and become a bright green.
- Serve these 5 Ingredient Honey Chilli Garlic Tiger Prawns with some rice noodles or just plain steamed rice.
- The cooking time may change by a minute or two depending on the size of prawns.
- Frozen Prawns: Frozen prawns have an advantage of being deveined and cleaned so they help save time while making this recipe, with the same great taste
- Make sure to only add defrosted prawns. Adding frozen prawns will leave out water in the pan making it diluted.
- I added in some snow peas right towards the end so that they could just sizzle a bit and not get all squishy. But you can totally add whatever vegetable works for you. I love adding broccoli, mushrooms, even beans or bok choy.
This was so easy and quite tasty!!

Awesome, Nancy! Honey chilli garlic prawns are yummm!
I used Mangetout instead of snow peas and didn't use the honey and it was fantastic.
Then I tried with honey and it cancelled out the chilli 🙁
Chiranjib Pradhan says
It's very testy.
Superb, easy and delicious.

It's total yum! I used onions instead of snow peas.
Just waiting for Sunday. The nicest part is that the list of ingredients is unbelievably small. Way to go Richa. Enrich us with simple and easy-to-prepare dishes.
Thank you Bibek! So glad you liked it 🙂

Maliha you shouldn't be! As long as they are cleaned and deveined properly, they are one of the easiest meats to cook. Just follow the timings I've mentioned (which will vary for smaller sized prawns) and you should be fine! I really hope you try it 🙂
Im slightly intimidated by prawns! this looks great and simple! will try soon
