DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the prawns in a colander, remove their heads and leave them to drain.
  • Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic and fry over a low heat for 2 to 3 minutes (Cook the prawns in a large frying pan or cast iron flamproof dish that can be taken directly to the table, so that they retain their heat until they are served).
  • Add the lime rind and juice.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute more.
  • Add the prawns and cook them for 2 to 3 minutes until they turn pink.
  • Remove them from the heat, sprinkle with coriander and serve with the warm tortillas.
  • Give each guest a finger bowl filled with water and a slice of lemon, for cleaning their fingers after shelling the prawns, and provide lots of paper napkins!
