My favorite dish especially when I'm feeling particularly lazy. The presence of only 3 other ingredients helps bring out the full flavor of the prawns. You may adjust the amount of garlic and chili as per your taste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 large prawns
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  1. Clean the prawns and cut the arms and whiskers but keep the heads and shells intact.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan and add the garlic and red chillies. Cook for about one minute.
  3. Now add the prawns and stir for 30 seconds. Then leave them to cook for a minute and a half without covering.
  4. As it turns pink in colour, turn off the heat.
