Ingredients

  • 400 g raw prawns peeled but with tail on is best
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp crushed dried chilli flakes or two whole dried chilli
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley

Instructions

  • De-vein the prawns and set aside on some kitchen paper to ensure they are very dry.
  • Pour the olive oil into a small frying pan (or hob proof dish).
  • Heat the oil over a high heat.
  • Whilst the oil is heating up roughly chop or slice the garlic. Don't crush/grate the garlic as you don't want it too small or it will burn before the prawns are cooked.
  • If you are using whole chilli, use scissors to chop into rounds.
  • When the oil is hot, add the chilli and garlic.
  • Give this a quick stir and then immediately add the prawns.
  • Cook over a high heat for about a minute per side.
  • Sprinkle with salt and the chopped parsley then serve immediately with chunks of bread.
