Good things from a small kitchen.
During the week I was watching Rick Stein’s travels through Spain again ( I really love Spanish food and could watch Rick all day, he really brings the food to life for me!) and saw him cook some fantastic prawns very simply so when I spotted some huge whole prawns at the fish counter that was my Friday dinner sorted!
When the prawns were cooked I placed them in a serving dish, emptied the pan of salt and then made the butter ( I’m a big fan of one pot cooking) . I sautéed the fresh green chilli, lemon zest, garlic and dried chilli for a couple of minutes then added a large knob of butter, a handful of parsley and some lemon juice.
The prawns were so moist and cooking them in the shell really adds to the flavour. The butter was great and using the dried and fresh chilli gave a great depth of heat without being overpowering. Perfect Friday night food, although a finger bowl was required!
