- 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.
