Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

20 raw king prawns with shell on
3 garlic cloves, crushed
Spring onion, finely sliced
1 small chilli, finely sliced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Small piece of ginger, peeled and halved
1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
Pinch of salt


1. Wash the king prawns. Bring a pot of water to the boil and add the ginger and a teaspoon of oil. Add the King Prawns and cover. The prawns take 2-3 minutes to cook. Don't overcook them or they will lose their flavour. Once the prawns are nicely pink and opaque, remove and dry on a piece of kitchen towel.

2. To make the sauce place the spring onion, chilli and crushed garlic into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pour over boiling hot olive oil. Take care not to burn yourself as the oil will spit. Add a tablespoon of soy sauce.

3. Serve the prawns with the sauce. This dish is a great finger food to share with family and friends, so get stuck in and enjoy!
