I’ve literally just finished eating this, and wished I’d made twice the amount (greedy cow!!)
100g raw tiger prawns, I used shell off but you could leave the shells on if you wished
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (mine was organic and fresh from the garden)
1 spring onion/scallion, finely chopped (ditto the above)
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (and NO, dried will NOT do- if ever there was a waste of a good thing, it is dried parsley!!)
1/2 red bird’s eye chilli (according to taste)
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp olive oil to prevent butter from catching
1 wedge lemon
salt & pepper
1. Melt butter and oil in non stick or heavy based pan
2. Add scallion, garlic and chilli- cook on low heat for 3 minutes or so and then raise temperature.
3. Add prawns and cook over high heat for 1-2 minutes. Turn prawns, then cook for a further minute until pink on all sides. Do not overcook or the result will be rubbery.
4. Add parsley and squeeze lemon over. Stir thoroughly. Remove from heat and season.
I ate this with freshly steamed potatoes and mange tout from our garden, but you could easily add a tbsp of creme fraiche and serve it over tagliatelle for a quick but delicious meal.
