Garlic Prawns

These prawns could be Mediterranean or Asian by changing the greens you serve with them.

Below is the Mediterranean version. For the Asian version add some Asian greens to the stir fry pan and a little splash of sesame oil and some cashews or peanuts if you like.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 32 medium green prawns, peeled and de-veined
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chilli paste
