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
- 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
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.
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.
