Garlic & Chilli Butterflied Prawns
TOTAL TIME: 2 HOURS
1 tsp GARDEN GOURMET GARLIC PASTE
3 large sweet chillies, seeds removed
1 tbsp GARDEN GOURMET CHILLI PASTE
100 mL olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
16 green Tiger prawns
1 cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
Zest (finely grated) and juice of 1 lemon
Preheat oven to 180ºC.
In a small roasting dish place garlic, chillies and olive oil and cook until the garlic is very tender and the chillies have blackened, approx. 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, cool completely and then blitz in a food processor.
To butterfly the prawns, use a serrated knife to slice through the back of the prawns from the head to tail. Remove the vein and open the prawns to lay flat.
Preheat grill pan or barbecue to high.
Place garlic, chilli and oil mixture into a bowl and add parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
Brush prawns with chilli mix and cook flesh-side down for 1-2 minutes until red and lightly charred. Turn and continue cooking until cooked through. Remove from heat and sprinkle with lemon zest.
Squeeze over lemon juice and serve immediately.
