Spanish Paprika Prawns


Spanish Paprika Prawns

These prawns turn out absolutely delicious, so juicy and succulent.  Makes a great starter or appetiser!!  Serve with lots of lemon and crusty bread to mop up delicious gravy.

Ingredients

  • 12-15 prawns (1 Kg medium sized)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup cream
  • ½ cup Aglio Olio sauce
  • Lemon and Parsley/coriander leaves for garnish

Trim the head and keep the shell & tail on the prawns.  Use kitchen scissors to cut down the middle to remove the vein.  Clip off the legs, etc. as shown. Wash and pat dry.  Rub salt on the prawns.

Take 1 tsp of just the oil from the aglio e olio sauce.  Heat a large wide pan till very hot.  Add oil and prawns.  Press the prawns down so that the shell gets a nice char.  After 2 mns on each side, add about ½ cup of the aglio e sauce and cook for 5 mns or till done.  Add lemon juice and cream, mix till heated through.  Take it off the heat and top with chopped parsley/coriander leaves.  Serve with crusty bread and lots of lemon wedges.
