Why do the American’s call it shrimp? It’s a prawn! And cilantro is another pet peeve, it’s coriander for Pete’s sake! And who’s Pete god damnit?! But I digress…
Want a quick and tasty meal? I’m all about quick and tasty. And HEALTHY! See my Garlic Prawns recipe below.
Garlic Prawns & Salad
10 x small to medium peeled & de-veined green prawns
1 x clove of garlic
Chilli (to your taste)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Salad ingredients of your choice (I used baby leaves, cherry tomatoes, avocado, feta and capsicum)
Balsamic vinegar & olive oil to dress
Toss the prawns in the garlic, chilli and lemon juice. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and over a high heat cook the prawns until just cooked through (should only take a couple of minutes).
Mix your salad ingredients together and drizzle the dressing over the top.
Serve the prawns with a little aoili on the side (you can make your own or a teaspoon of Paul Newman’s is just as tasty).
And that’s it. Lazy cooking at it’s best.
