Chilli King Prawns

Brilliantly simple and mouth watering dish. Do not over cook the king prawns.


50ml    Olive oil

4          Garlic cloves, crushed

1-2      Red chillies, finely chopped

350g    Raw king prawns (de-veined)

1 tsp     Sugar

2 tbs     Fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

1          Lemon, quartered into wedges

Sea salt

Preparation and cooking

Prepare the raw prawns by removing their shells and the black vein that runs down the back. Make a small cut the length of the prawn to remove the vein and open up the prawn when it’s cooked. Wash the prawns in water.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for 1-2 minutes. Then add the prawns, sugar and sea salt, cooking quickly for no more that 1-2 minutes. Stir in the parsley and serve in warmed dishes with lemon wedges.


Use small fresh water prawns instead of the raw king prawns but just cook for 1 minute at the same stage.
