Ingredients

  • 25g butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, seeds left in and finely chopped
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika
  • 12-20 large raw king prawns with shells
  • juice 1 lemon, plus a few slices for a finger bowl
  • ½ x small bunch parsley, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Melt the butter and oil together in a frying pan. Add the garlic, chilli and paprika, then fry for 1-2 mins until starting to turn golden. Turn up the heat, throw in the prawns and fry for a few mins, stirring, until all the prawns turn pink. Take off the heat, season and stir in the lemon juice and parsley.

  2. Add some lemon slices to a finger bowl of warm water, grab a bowl for the shells, then dig straight in with your fingers and hunks of crusty bread.
