Gambas al Ajillo

Garlic Prawns

I have been very inspired by the food of Spain lately. I started taking Spanish language lessons at the start of the year at Casa de Flamenco in preparation for my trip to Spain next year and now I cant get enough of all things Spanish!


olive oil
14 prawns, peeled and deveined
5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
half a chilli, cut in half again
sea salt
parsley, finely chopped


Heat enough oil in a pan to cover the prawns. When the oil is hot add the garlic (it should be sizzling) and chilli. Wait a few seconds before adding the prawns and cook for one minute, turning them so they cook evenly. Spoon prawns into a serving dish, pour the oil on top and sprinkle on the chopped parsley. Eat with lots of crusty bread.
