  • 50ml olive oil, plus a drizzle
  • 4 large tiger prawns, unpeeled
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
  • ½ red chilli, sliced
  • flat-leaf parsley chopped to make 1 tbsp
  • 1-2 slices sourdough or baguette, cut at an angle
  • ½ lemon


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a frying pan over a high heat and cook the prawns for 1 minute 30 seconds on one side, then flip over. Add the garlic and chilli, and cook for another 1 minute 30 seconds.

  • STEP 2

    Remove the pan from the heat, season with salt and add the parsley. Toast the bread with a little oil in a separate frying pan. Add the lemon half to the pan, cut-side down, and cook until the bread is deeply golden and the lemon slightly charred. Squeeze the charred lemon over the prawns and serve.
