  • 12 raw king prawns or tiger prawns, peeled
  • 30 ml/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 30 ml/2 tbsp sherry
  • A few drops of Tabasco sauce
  • Salt and ground black pepper



1 Make a shallow cut down the back of each prawn, then pull out and discard the dark intestinal tract. Leave the tails on the prawns; when they are cooked they will curl and look more decorative.

2 Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the prawns for 2—3 minutes until pink.

3 Pour over the sherry and season with Tabasco sauce, salt and pepper.

4 Tip the prawns into a dish and serve immediately.
