Ingredients

2 pounds giant prawns, with heads and shells on

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons Spanish paprika

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1/2 lemon, sliced thinly

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Make a quick marinade for the prawns by combining them in a bowl with a healthy drizzle of olive oil, the paprika, crushed garlic, lemon slices, salt, and pepper. Toss the prawns so they are coated with all the good stuff and marinate for 5 minutes to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. When the oil is hot, pull the prawns out of the marinade and toss them into the pan. Saute for 3 minutes on each side until the shells are red and charred.
