Pan Roasted Prawns Print Email

2 pounds giant prawns, with heads and shells on
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons Spanish paprika
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 lemon, sliced thinly
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Make a quick marinade for the prawns by combining them in a bowl with a healthy drizzle of olive oil, the paprika, crushed garlic, lemon slices, salt, and pepper. Toss the prawns so they are coated with all the good stuff and marinate for 5 minutes to 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. When the oil is hot, pull the prawns out of the marinade and toss them into the pan. Sauté for 3 minutes on each side until the shells are red and charred. - Tyler Florence
