  • 1kg Tiger prawns peeled, tail on
  • 4 red chili peppers
  • 10 dried spanish peppers
  • 6 bulbs of garlic = 60 to 70 pieces of garlic
  • cooking olive oil, enough to cover all the garlic and peppers
  • bread preferably bake of Ciabatta, 2


    1. peel and slice all the garlic. Slice the peppers into big pieces.
    2. place the garlic and peppers in a large frying pan and cover with the oil.
    3. put on a very low light so that the peppers nd garlic are lightly cooking. While you are doing this bake the bread following baking instructions.
    4. stir gently now and again until the garlic and peppers are soft. (never high hest you will burn the garlic)
    5. strain the oil off keeping the garlic and peppers apart. Put the oil back in the frying pan and put on high.
    6. when the oil is nearly smoking put the prawns in for around 5 minutes. Just before they are ready put the peppers and garlic back in the pan for another two minutes. Serve in a deep plate just with bread.
