Garlic butter prawn pots

Nothing says summer quite like a steaming bowl of prawns with chilli mayonnaise and a hunk of crusty bread. This recipe is surprisingly easy and quick.


100g butter
3 cloves finely chopped garlic
32 fresh cleaned and deveined prawns
1 fresh, chopped chilli
½ tsp sweet smoked paprika
2 tbsp olive oil
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 halved
Fresh baguette


Add the butter to a large pan on low heat, and as it melts add the garlic and simmer for a minute. Add the prawns and turn up the heat to medium-high to cook them for 3-4 minutes each side, until they’re a lovely coral-pink colour and the flesh is firm but tender and white. Gently fry the chilli and paprika in olive oil in a separate saucepan for 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat. Divide the cooked prawns equally into four bowls and serve hot, with a dollop of mayonnaise drizzled with the cooked chilli oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. Serve with fresh baguette to mop up the flavours.
