It's not the recipe that the problem guys - it's the quality of your ingredients! If the prawns are tasteless, then they're bad prawns and you should buy from somewhere else :)

Just add a teaspoon or two of chilli from a jar to really hit the spot. Fantastic with fresh bread to mop up the juices! Simple, quick & blooming tasty, again & again.

A bit like a gambas pil pil, tho white wine is used, not sherry, and definitely add a little fresh chilli to the sauce for a kick!
Alternatively, I do a starter of prawns cooked in garlicky white wine, reduce the 'sauce' down a bit, add your fresh chilli, a dollop of fresh cream, followed by a tablespoon or 2 of canned chopped tomatoes - always a hit!! And can be a nice summery main course too - nice bread and a Pinot Grigio top it off for a midweek sin!!

I would definitely add lemon zest and some lemon juice as well for additional flavour.

if you add more garlic, some chilli and make sure prawns are peeled so they absorb more flavour they turn out less bland
