I used maybe a 1/4 cup of olive oil. Smashed the garlic (about 5 or 7 cloves) in the mortar and pestle with a dried chilie from my garden. Great flavor. GREAT LUNCH!
I like the flavor from the bay leaves, very subtle but definately adds to the overall taste. I used dried hot pepper flakes (1 tsp) and fried the prawns instead of grilling I always feel I have more control over the cooking time so the prawns come out ready to explode when you bite into them Cut the oil in half. We enjoyed our dinner I can assure you Thanks Poppy for a keeper
