Prawns cooked in hot garlic oil. I was lucky to buy 8 cast iron rammikins on ebay last year for $40. Just brilliant. The trick in making this receipe is not to burn your garlic. Make sure you use a very light oil such as grapeseed oil or rice bran oil which has a high smoke point and will not overpower your prawns. You should not taste any oil on your prawns.
Preheat oven to 220 degrees
Chop garlic and divide evenly into ramikins
Fill rammikin halfway with oil
Putting rammikins into a flat bottomed baking dish, put into oven to heat
Peel prawns leaving tail on
Oil is hot enough when the garlic is just starting to colour and you can smell it
Add prawns, they should only take 2-3 mins to cook.
Add chopped parsley and stir
Serve with crusty bread
If you don't have cast iron rammikins, try heating the oil and garlic in a cake tin and then adding the prawns and serve in a large tea cup
