This is again a quick and easy to make started which requires fresh prawns (ideally, small to medium size) and a good olive oil. The rest is as simple as garlic and chili. That's about it!
For another quick starter recipe with shrimp/prawns, please check this previous post. They're almost similar.
Prep: 1 min - Cooking : 2 min
- 500 g of fresh prawns, small to medium size, peeled
- 2 cloves of garlic, finely sliced or chopped
- 1 tbsp of parley, very finely chopped (optional)
- Salt to taste
- 1 small dried red chili, discard the seeds for less heat
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
The result of this recipe is a hot tender prawn which is very pleasant to eat. It's important you don't over-fry it as this would ruin the texture. Basically, the moment we add the prawns to the hot oil, we just knock off the heat.

prawn in the middle for comparison sake.
Add the prawns, salt, parsley. Knock off the heat and stir the ingredients to make sure the prawns fry in a minute from all sides.
