  • Cooking time: 
  • Serves: Up to 6 people
  • Course: Soups and starters

Serves: 4-6
Preparation Time: 20 minutes plus marinating
Cooking Time: 4-5 minutes
Tools: Multi-Mill


  1. 1 Peel the prawns, leaving the tail end attached. Using a sharp knife, make a shallow cut along the outer curve from the tail to the head and remove the dark thread. Rinse under cold running water and dry with absorbent kitchen paper.
  2. 2 Place the garlic, chilli and lemon juice in the Multi-Mill and process until the garlic and chilli are finely chopped. Transfer to a shallow dish. Add the olive oil and prawns and toss together to coat.
  3. 3 Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes, or longer, if time allows. Meanwhile place the parsley in the Multi-Mill and process to chop.
  4. 4 Heat a heavy based frying pan until hot, add the prawns and marinade and cook very quickly, stirring all the time, for about 2-3 minutes, or until the prawns turn from grey to pink. Sprinkle over the parsley and serve immediately, with crusty bread, if wished.
