Servings: 4 people
  • 500 gr peeled prawns
  • 10 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 1 small chili thinly diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley thinly chopped
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste
  • White pepper to taste
  1. In a big pan heat the olive oil over low heat (note 1).
  2. Toss the garlic, the chili and stir constantly to prevent burning the garlic. Cook for 30 sec.
  3. Add the prawns, the salt and the white pepper. Cook for 7 minutes until the prawns are pink. 1 minute before ending the cooking process toss the parsley and serve.

Recipe Notes
  1. The garlic cooks quickly. It is important that the heat is low to give it time to the garlic and chili to release flavor into the oil.
