Garlic Shrimp



This is an adaptation of a Bill Granger recipe.

serves 2.

Ingredients:

6 king prawns, cleans and deveined, tails on
1 large clove of garlic, finely minced
1/4 c. olive oil
2 medium basic leaves, chopped
salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Rinse prawns and slice down the back.
2. Heat oil over medium heat in a small ovenproof saucepan. Add 1/2 garlic- let simmer. When garlic starts to change, place prawns in single layer in saucepan. Sprinkle with remaining garlic, salt, and pepper. Put in oven for 5 to 10 minutes (until prawns are pink). Let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with basil.
3. Serve hot or at room temp. Mine were at room temp for the picnic and were quite good.
