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
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.
