Hot and Spicy King Prawns

There are some fresh seafood ingredients in the market today and I've decided to cook myself some prawns. My husband enjoys hot and spicy food, so I decided to cook him some hot and spicy prawns. Like fish, prawns cooks really fast and if it is overcooked, the prawns can be very rubbery. The key to cook prawns is to ensure that the pan is hot and not to cook it for more than 4 minutes - depending of course to the size of the prawns.

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 lbs large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • salt
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro or 1 cup flat leaf parsley
  1. Firstly, heat up the olive oil in a very large skillet.
  2. Then stir in the garlic, paprika, cumin, ginger and cayenne and cook over moderate heat until fragrant.
  3. Then add the shrimp and cook it for about 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Finally, season it with salt and stir in the cilantro.
  5. This dish is best serve warm with rice.
