Recipe: Garlic and Chilli Prawns ....


While on holidays in Spain my daughter ordered a gorgeous prawn dish for dinner one evening . Clearly missing the relaxed holiday  lifestyle, she decided to recreate the recipe for our lunch last week. Who was I to argue with that,  and once I heard garlic and prawns mentioned I waited in hungry anticipation for my lovely treat. They were absolutely divine and I may be looking for them every week from now on!! This is what she used for the recipe...

250g of large prawns
100 ml olive oil
50g butter
1 red chilli diced
chopped coriander to garnish

Directions...

Heat the oil and butter on a heatproof pan until foaming . Add the diced chilli and garlic and stir for a few minutes until  golden brown. When sizzling add prawns and cook for about 3 mins. Serve with some freshly sliced baguette to mop up all the lovely left over juices:)

Hope you all enjoy:)
