Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Season the prawns and set aside. Cook the garlic over medium-low heat until it just starts to colour. Increase heat to high and add the prawns and chilli. Stir quickly and keep turning prawns in the pan.
  2. After 1 min, pour in the lemon juice. Toss until prawns are opaque – about 1 min more. Sprinkle over lemon zest and parsley and serve with crusty bread.

i have used this many times, to mix things up a little, add a little dry sherry or white wine at the last minute, mixes lovely with the oil and chilli, add crusty bread to soak up the juice

Had these last night with friends, everyone loved them, were so quick to do and was able to prep everything before hand, these will be a regular in our house.
