Garlic and Chili Prawns

Spicy Garlic Chili Prawns

Garlic and chili prawns are my go-to starter for a dinner party. Especially when served with a glass of wine and warm bread to mop up the juices.

They are super nutritious to have if you are trying to keep fit and healthy. But they are also a very quick and easy meal to prepare.

If you like quick, easy and healthy meals then try the best one pot chicken cacciatore.

  • 20 ml Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • A few sprigs Parsley or dried if that's all you have

  • If the shells are still on, peel them and remove the heads and tails. Run your knife along the back of the shell and remove the dark intestinal line.
  • Peel and finely chop the garlic.
  • Finely chop the chilli. Remove the seeds if you don't want it too hot.

  • Heat your pan to medium high heat, add in the garlic and chilli and cook for one minute, then add in the smoked paprika.
  • Add the prawns and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and turned pink.
  • Once you turn the prawns over, add in the parsley and squeeze in the juice of half a lemon.
  • Remove from the heat, taste and season with salt.
  • Serve the sizzling prawns with warm crusty bread. Cut the remaining lemon into wedges for squeezing over the top.
  • Enjoy with a lovely glass of white wine.
