    This is a very simple tapas recipe which is packed with flavour. It can be easily scaled - just use one head of garlic for every 500g prawns.

    Serves: 4 

    • 500g fresh prawns
    • 1 head of garlic
    • dry chillies to taste
    • olive oil (enough to shallow-fry prawns)
    • salt to taste
    • fresh parsley

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:23min 

    1. Roughly chop the garlic and as many dried chillies as you can handle. Peel the prawns (or buy ready-peeled).
    2. Heat the olive oil and lightly fry the garlic and chilli. Remove garlic and chilli and set aside. In the same oil, fry the prawns until cooked, about 3 minutes.
    3. Return the garlic and chilli to the pan and add salt to taste. Saute for 2 minutes more then serve, garnished with fresh parsley.
