Step by Step Garlic Prawn Cob Loaf is a Winner this Easter!


Easter is such an awesome time to entertain family and friends – and pull out some showstopping cooking. Wow the crowd you will with this epic garlic prawn seafood cob! Everything you need is at Woolies, so warm up your trolley wheels and come see how it’s done.

Combining all of my greatest loves.. in a cob loaf

Cob loaf. Prawns. Garlic. Cream. Could there BE a better dish to wow a crowd? Better yet, everything you need is available at your fingertips. There’s no stressful visit to a fish market to be seen here, folks.

That’s right, it’s as easy as walking up to the Woolworths seafood case and choosing from their amazing variety of seafood. Prawns are a firm family favourite for us, so I’m choosing these delicious crustaceans for the win.

Bought from the Woolies seafood case, the raw prawn meat is ready to cook (no mess, no fuss!), while the already cooked tiger prawns are perfect for people to peel and dip as they please – such a gorgeous treat – and awesome prices!

You don’t need to be a Masterchef to create this AMAZING cob!

You’ll be amazed just how EASY it is to make this deliciously creamy, very indulgent garlic prawn cob – it will take all your might NOT to double-dip! It’s rich, dotted with prawns and thickens up as it hits the cob. It won’t last long, that’s for sure, so dip quick.
