“This dish couldn’t be simpler, just three simple steps – using good quality red prawns (gamba roja), cooked with parsley, garlic and chilli. For the perfect summer plate”


  1. Confit the garlic in the olive oil over a medium heat, when the garlic just turns golden add the chillies and the gambas.
  2. Cook for about 1 minute each side till they slightly change colour.
  3. Now add the parsley, season with salt and pepper, and ready to go!
