Traditionally this dish is served in a little brown style taps casserole pot. If you have the right kind you can actually cook your prawns in the same pot. However down worry if you don’t own such a thing a heavy based frying pan will work perfectly fine. My advice when cooking this dish is to at least double up on your quantities as I guarantee they will all go – Quickly!

Ingredients

  • 500g Tiger Prawns (Shell On)
  • 1 Red Chilli
  • 2 Cloves of fresh Garlic, finely chopped
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of Paprika
  • Small bunch of Flat Leaf Parsley

Slice your ciabatta bread and then toast it.

Step 2

Cut your chilli in half legnthways, remove seeds and then finely chop

Step 3

Step 5

Now add the prawns, chilli, paprika, salt & pepper and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the prawns turn pick and begin to curl.

Step 6
