The picture doesn’t quite do these beauties justice, but they were the biggest prawns I have seen in my life. If you look at the fork, you might get an idea as to how big they are.
A simple lunch with high quality ingredients never fails. Sautée some cherry tomatoes and sliced red chilli in a good quality olive oil (I never understand why people skimp on this ingredient, it flavours your entire dish, so quality and taste are imperative) and add the prawns. Cook for about 1.5 minutes on each side or until they are orange. Finally, add a couple of cloves of diced garlic, so it doesn’t burn. Stir through tagliatelle and splash on more olive oil. Finish off with torn basil and season well.
Summer lunch in under 15 minutes.
