Hot and Spicy Prawns
These are packed full of flavour to tickle your taste buds. Serve them with plenty of crusty bread for mopping up the delicious buttery juices. You may wish to serve this meal with finger bowls because people will not be able to resist picking them up to shell. This will serves four.
600 g cooked shell-on prawns, thawed if frozen
Large knob of butter
2 tablespoons chopped coriander
Ingredients for the Paste
30g smoked paprika
30g ground cumin
30g ground coriander
10g cayenne pepper
120ml olive oil
40g brown sugar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. First make the paste. Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. This will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container.
2. Place about a tablespoon of the paste in a large frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Add the seafood and shake the pan to cover them in the paste. When they are warmed through add the butter and a splash of warm water to make a sauce. Sprinkle over some fresh coriander.
Serve with your favourite bread or rolls.
