Garlic Prawns

Copyright 2002: Donna Hay, Modern Classics 1

4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
8 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
24 medium green (raw) prawns (shrimp), peeled, tails left intact
2 teaspoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Heat four small pans on the stovetop over medium heat. Divide the oil, butter, garlic and chilli flakes between the pans and cook for 1 minute or until the butter melts. Reduce the heat to low. Divide the prawns, parsley, and a little salt between the pans and cook or 1-2 minutes each side or until the prawns are cooked through. Serve in pans with slices of crusty fresh bread or baguette.

Serves 4

(My note: I don't have 4 small pans, or 4 small burners. I just used one big pan, and cooked all the shrimp together. It was fine.)
