Everyone has to have a few recipes up their sleeve that looks super impressive but takes less than 5 minutes to cook. This is one of those recipes. It can be easily scaled up depending on the number of people, and works as a simple starter or as a light meal.
Griddling is a wonderful cooking technique in that is adds a wonderful charred flavour to any food and you don’t need much oil to cook in a griddle pan. This recipe can be done with prawns that have already been shelled if picking away prawn shells doesn’t sound too appealing.
To make this you will need:
Your desired number of raw prawns
Fry light or similar
1 large clove of garlic
A griddle pan
Half a lemon
Put your griddle pan on a high heat. Spritz with your oil or fry light. Crush over your garlic clove and slice over the chilli and heat until both are fragrant.
Place your prawns in the pan and grill until both sides are pink and slightly charred. Drizzle over some lemon juice mid way through cooking.
Serve with whatever you fancy.
Sometimes simple and effective is all you need.
