Garlic Chilli Prawns

 Eaten by the sea with a glass of chilled white wine, this was the standout dish. These gorgeous prawns are super-easy to recreate at home; the beachfront setting is optional, but for maximum Spanish effect, the chilled wine and crusty bread are not! 


Active Time: 8 mins | Total Time: 22 mins Serves: 2


Ingredients

  • 25g butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, seeds left in and finely chopped
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika
  • 1kg large Argentinian prawns with shells
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ x small bunch parsley roughly chopped

Short Instructions:

Step 1   

Melt the butter and oil together in a frying pan. Add the garlic, chilli and paprika, then fry for 1-2 mins until starting to turn golden. Turn up the heat, throw in the prawns and fry for a few mins, stirring, until all the prawns turn pink. Take off the heat, season and stir in the lemon juice and parsley.

Step 2   

Add some lemon slices to a finger bowl of warm water, grab a bowl for the shells, then dig straight in with your fingers and hunks of crusty bread.
