I know we are all very busy and always on the lookout for quick and simple meals to put on the table. If like me, you are a fan of tapas, then I think you are going to like this classic tapas dish of spicy garlic prawns. It is also super easy to make. I dare say I used ready peeled frozen jumbo prawns for this. Don’t shoot me, I just like the convenience. Add in lots of minced garlic, olive oil, crushed chilli flakes and there you have it. Oh, don’t forget the salt. Hey – that is all of 5 ingredients!

You can serve it with store bought bread or home baked bread, whatever works for you. Keep it as a side dish or increase the portion to make it a more substantial main. In the photos you can see that I paired it with some oregano and sesame crusted rolls I made. Do choose bread that can work as a sponge to soak up all the delicious sauce! There you have it, a quick and delicious meal. It really does not get easier than this. Happy eating friends!
