It's pretty damm easy actually.

Just get ~150 grams of prawns (big ones, with tails on) per person, they don't really even cost that much compared to a steak or whatever...

Melt a decent amount of butter in a frying pan, and throw in the prawns, you'll have to continually flip them, and be careful not to burn them, and also be careful not to have the heat too low, or they will go soggy+squishy, once they are cooked through, and nice and orange at the tail end, put in 1-2 cloves of fresh garlic, chopped up finely, along with about 250mls of thickened cream, and stir it all through.

Add in a good amount of chopped parsley (safe option), or if you like the taste of it, use coriander instead.

Just let it simmer for a few minutes until it turns into a really thick creamy sauce and serve on rice.

Seriously, takes about 5-10minutes all up.

To get wax out of cloth the quickest and easiest way to do it is to place a tea towel over the stain and then iron over the tea towel. When the iron passes over the spot the wax should be absorbed into the way.

I've used this technique numerous times on my carpet when wax has been spilt onto it.

Sure haha

First off get a nice steak, like a scotch fillet or rump, like 2cm thick, not a povo blade steak. Before you start, go nuts with pepper, and rock salt - just put it all over (it wont make it taste salty I promise ).

Then cook it for a minute and a half each side on high heat, and another 2-3 minutes each side on low-medium heat, depending how you like it cooked.

The mushroom sauce (which you can have going while you're cooking the steaks), needs a lot of mushrooms as they cook down massively, so probably a really big handful of sliced mushrooms per person.

In a saucepan add in some oil and a finely chopped clove of garlic, let it cook for a few seconds, and then add in your mushrooms. Once the mushrooms are looking nice and soft, add in some thickened cream, enough to cover all of the mushrooms nicely and some pepper and some finely chopped parsley. Let it simmer for a few minutes while the steaks are cooking, just keep an eye on it!

You'll need to put your potatos into boiling water about 30mins beforehand, until you can stick a fork in and it slides right out. Pour out the water, and mash them with a potato masher, add in a bit of butter, a dash of milk, some salt and pepper, and 1/2 a clove of finely diced garlic.

I try to only flip my steaks the once. What I do is put my oven on its lowest setting first and bung a plate in there. Then i heat up a frypan (preferably a cast iron one) till it's smoking hot. I crack quite abit of salt and pepper onto some baking paper with abit of a drizzle of olive oil. I then dry the steak off with paper towels and then press it down onto the salt and pepper, turn it over and do the same with the other side.

I then put this steak onto the unoiled frypan and fry it for 2 minutes or so, till i get a nice crust, flip it over and fry the other side until it's done. I test how well done the steak is by giving it a slight prod with my finger. The more well done it is, the more resistance you'll get to your push. When the steak is cooked to my liking, I'll pull the plate out of the oven, turn the oven off, cover the meat with alfoil and sit it back in the oven while I make my sauce - if any.

One of my favourite condiments to a decent steak is getting butter, some parsley, a little garlic and some anchovies, and mashing them all up together, and then chucking them back in the fridge and once it's hardened up again having a square or round of that on your steak... mmm! Anchovies.

Edit: I had that whole rant without even checking out your piccies of your steak and your prawns, great presentation! Good work!
