This is such an easy and delicious dish to serve to friends and family on a hot summer's day. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and cook. Serve with some crispy bread and beverage of your choice.

Vhilli and mint prawns recipe


  • 5 tbsp olive oil

  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped

  • 4 Spring onions finely chopped

  • Half a red chilli finely chopped (or whole if you prefer it hot)

  • 350g raw giant king prawns (head & tail left on)

  • Sea salt

  • Handful of mint leaves (finely chopped)

  • 1/4 tsp of allspice


  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a high heat

  • Add the chopped garlic cloves, spring onions and chilli and stir fry for a minute

  • Add the prawns and a pinch of salt

  • Cook for one to two minutes each side until the prawns are coral pink and cooked through. Keep shaking the pan so the other ingredients don't burn turning regularly

  • Scatter the mint leaves and allspice into the pan and mix well

  • Tip onto a serving dish and serve immediately

Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a starter.
