The method

  1. De-vein the prawns by making a slit along the back and removing any noticeable digestive tract – to butterfly, open the prawns more.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a small frying pan, add the garlic and chilli and sauté gently until the garlic has released some of his aromatic flavours. Add the prawns and cook over a low heat until the prawns have lost their translucency and have turned pink.
  3. Transfer the prawns to a small terracotta dish and serve – sprinkled with parsley and lemon. Hand Tortilla or bread separately.
