Ingredients

  • 12-16 large sustainably sourced raw prawns

For the salsa

  • Bunch fresh coriander
  • Small bunch fresh parsley
  • 2 green chillies (see tip)
  • 3 large red and yellow tomatoes or large handful cherry tomatoes
  • Good pinch caster sugar
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • Good glug extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for rubbing

For the garlic butter

  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

Method

  1. For the salsa, snip the herbs into a bowl, then snip in the chillies and the tomatoes (be careful as you insert the point of the scissors into the tomato – they can spurt). Stir in the sugar and vinegar, season well and stir in enough olive oil to make a thick salsa.
  2. Melt the butter with the garlic in a pan, remove from the heat and leave to infuse.
  3. Rub the prawns all over with a little olive oil. On a barbecue, or on a griddle pan on the campfire or the hob over a high heat, add the prawns and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until pink all over. Serve with the salsa and garlic butter.

delicious. tips

  1. To de-seed a chilli without a knife, roll between your hands, snip off the top and tap against the side of a bowl to knock out the seeds. This will reduce the heat a little, but the hottest parts of a chilli are the strips of white pith – so snip these out too, if you want.
