2 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 red chilli, seeds left in and finely chopped
½ teaspoon sweet paprika
12-20 large raw king prawns with shells
Juice 1 lemon, plus a few slices for a finger bowl
½ x small bunch parsley, roughly chopped
Small loaf crusty bread, warmed to serve
Melt the butter & oil together in a frying pan. Add the garlic, chilli and paprika, fry for 1-2 mins until mixture starts to turn golden. Turn up the heat and place the prawns in and fry for a few mins, stirring, until all the prawns turn pink. Take off the heat, season and stir in the lemon juice and parsley. Add some lemon slices to a finger bowl of warm water, grab a bowl for the shells, then dig straight in with your fingers and hunks of crusty bread.
