Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a medium bowl, stir the salt into 1 cup of water until it has dissolved. Add the prawns and soak them for 5 minutes, then drain and pat them dry.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy frying pan over moderately high heat with the whole garlic until hot but not smoking. Add the prawns and cook for a few seconds to seal in the flavor and then remove.
  • Pour out all of the oil and discard the garlic. Return the prawns to the frying pan and reheat over medium-high heat. Pour the lime juice over the prawn and add the butter, minced garlic, paprika, piquins, and sherry.
  • Simmer until the prawns have turned pink, which will only take a couple of minutes.
  • Take care to not overcook them as it ruins both the flavour and the texture of the prawns.
  • Serve with your favourite white wine or rose, chilled, and watch a sunset with some friends.
