Microwave Garlic Prawn Po’Boy Sliders


Can you cook seafood in a microwave? I’m doing just that with the juiciest, garlic butter-basted prawns atop a golden grilled bun. Make way for slider central: one-appliance sandwich comin’ straight through!


Microwave Garlic Prawn Po’Boy Sliders

5 minutes
15 minutes
Makes 4 sliders

50g (1.5 oz) butter

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp chilli flakes

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

½ tsp sea salt

12 medium-sized prawns, peeled, deveined

4 mini brioche burger buns, halved

1 cup finely sliced cos lettuce, to serve


Spicy mayo:

¼ cup mayonnaise

1 tbsp sriracha or your choice of hot sauce


Step 1

For the spicy mayo, mix the ingredients and set aside.

Step 2

To cook the prawns, place the butter, olive oil, chilli flakes, garlic and salt in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 600W for 2 minutes or until the butter has melted. Place the prawns in the melted butter mixture and microwave at 400W for a further 4-5 minutes or until the prawns are just cooked. Remove the bowl from the microwave. Remove tails from prawns and discard.

Step 3

To grill the buns, place them cut side down on the microwave’s wire rack accessory*, then transfer rack into the microwave. Using the Grill function, cook buns for 1 minute. Remove from microwave, then turn buns over so the cut side is now facing up. Brush with some of the melted garlic butter from the prawns. Grill for a further 4 minutes or until crisp and golden.

Step 4

To assemble, spread the spicy mayo on the bottom of each bun. Top with lettuce and 3 garlic prawns. Spread the cut-side of the bun top with more spicy mayo, then sit on top of your piled-up bases. Serve immediately.
