If you like garlic (like me) and prawns, this super fast and delicious recipe is ideal for you.
I prepared this dish for our tapas dinner last weekend but you can also toss spaghetti with the prawns for a complete 1-dish meal.
Garlic Lemon Prawns
1kg fresh prawn (peeled and deveined)
4-6 cloves garlic (peeled and sliced thinly)
Fresh lemon juice (from half lemon)
1 stalk fresh dill (remove leaves from stem)
½ tsp sugar
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp white wine
Marinate deveined prawns with sugar, salt and olive oil for at least 15 minutes.
Heat 5 tbsp olive oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. Sautee prawns for 1-2 minutes until prawns curled and turn red.
After about a minute, before the prawns are fully cooked, add garlic slices (You do not want to brown/burn the garlic) and dill leaves (keep some for garnishing). Sautee until prawns are cooked.
Squeeze in the lemon juice and white wine.
Add salt and pepper to taste. (If you like the extra kick, add cayenne pepper or cut chili padi)
Plate and garnish with remaining fresh dill.
