These garlic and chilli prawns are easy to do and make a lovely starter. They are marinaded in lemon juice which starts the cooking process and keeps them tender.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus 20 minutes marinading
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

16 prawns (the bigger the better)
1 lemon
1/2 red chilli or teaspoon of chilli flakes
4 cloves garlic
olive oil

If your prawns have shells on then remove these first. You can leave the tail on if you like.

Butterfly the prawns by running a sharp nice down the inside length but not all the way through, then flatten out.

In a dish, squeeze in the juice of the lemon.

Remove the seeds from the chilli, finely chop and add to the lemon juice.

Crush the garlic and add to the chilli and lemon juice.

Add your prawns and mix well in the juice.

Leave to marinade for 20 minutes.

Remove the prawns from the lemon marinade and fry on a medium heat for around 5 minutes.

Your prawns are cooked when they turn pink. Be careful not to cook them too long or else they will get chewy.

This tasty starter goes well with a little peppery rocket and a garlic herb mayonnaise.
