Method
 
  1. Marinate prawns in 2tbsp of olive oil, garlic and pepper for just 20 minutes, if you have time (otherwise skip it). PRO TIP: Add salt just before cooking so it doesn’t draw juice out of the prawns = less juicy prawns and not as golden!
  2. Sear in batches – don’t crowd the pan! Less prawns = better colour = easier to handle = won’t overcook. (PRO TIP: We use butter AND oil for searing. Butter = better flavour, but if you only use butter, it burns at the high heat required to make prawns golden)
  3. Wine – it will sizzle and steam when the wine hits the hot pan which is GOOD! This means it reduced down very quickly (~30 seconds) which is exactly what we want (fast cook = juicy prawns)
  4. More butter (optional) – this is optional, it will create extra sauce for wow factor when you plate it up (pictured!) and provides plenty of sauce for mopping up with bread. PRO TIP: This is added at the end because if you add it at the start, you end up deep frying prawns in butter!
  5. Lemon – an essential finishing touch;
  6. Parsley – a little sprinkle for garnish!
