This recipe is exactly how I like my prawns -bold garlic, bit of heat and a touch of lemon. cut the olive oil back to 1 tbsp. Thanks Luby this will be repeated many times. 1 Sept 2011 Took a while but I made these again this time using West Coast Wild Spot Prawns - Heavenly! Great recipe

Just how I like my shrimp; nice and garlicky! I subbed butter for the oil and halved the amount to save some fat calories. I loved the kick from the red pepper flakes. If you make this for a romantic dinner, make sure you both love garlic. ;) Thanx for posting.

I tried this after seeing it in Gourmet magazine. I used less oil than indicated and decreased the red pepper. I minced the garlic for extra flavor.
