Recipe – Serves 4


Prawns with Chilli, Parsley, Ginger and Garlic on Toasted Ciabatta bread.

A fusion between Italian and Thai comes to mind when you taste this quick and easy to prepare dish and it should prove to be a popular one for friends and family. It can be served as a starter or a main course – you’ll need the following ingredients:

Extra virgin olive oil

1 finger-sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely sliced

2-3 fresh red chillies, deseeded and finely sliced

16 large whole tiger prawns, tails on or off (use more if prawns are small)

1-2 lemons

1 handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Sea salt and ground black pepper

4 long slices of ciabatta bread, toasted

Method: Heat a large frying pan and add 4 tablespoons of olive oil, ginger, chilli, garlic and prawns. Stir-fry for about 3 minutes, then turn the heat down and squeeze in the juice of 1 lemon. Add the parsley and add a few splashes of olive oil. Toss around and remove from heat. The sauce should be nice and juicy. It may need a little more lemon juice. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Serve immediately over the ciabatta. Enjoy!!

Tips: Keep a bottle of chilled white wine in the fridge to accompany this dish. Add more chilli if you like it spicy.
