Ingredients

  • 12 whole raw king prawns
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 1½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • a small handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • a squeeze lemon juice
  • crusty or keto bread ,to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1
    Shell the prawns, leaving the little end tail in place. Butterfly the prawns by gently running a sharp knife along the back of the prawns so that they open up and remove the black vein.
  • STEP 2

    Heat the butter in a large frying pan. Lightly crush the cumin seeds with a pestle and mortar and add to the pan with the garlic. Fry for 1 minute before tossing in the prawns and cooking for 2-3 minutes until they’ve turned pink. Stir through the parsley and a good squeeze of lemon juice, and serve with crusty bread, if you like.
