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.
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)
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.
