• Ingredients:

    30ml (2tbsp) olive oil

    2 cloves garlic, chopped

    1/2-1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

    1/2 lemon, zested and juiced

    10ml (2tsp) dry sherry

    150g (5oz) raw shelled prawns

    chopped parsley to serve (optional)

    crusty bread to serve


    Heat the oil in a large frying pan, over a gentle heat. Add the garlic, chillies and lemon zest and cook gently for 1 minute - be careful not to let the garlic brown and burn. Add the lemon juice, sherry and increase the heat until it is sizzling, add the prawns and sauté until the prawns have all turned pink. Increase the heat and reduce the juices by half. Transfer to a dish and scatter over the parsley if using. Serve with crusty bread.
