Barbecued Split Prawns
12 large whole green king prawns
50 ml olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 banana chilli
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon chervil, chopped
1. Split prawns along their backs, open up to flatten and remove the waste track. Warm olive oil over low heat. Add garlic and chilli and cook without colouring for 1 minute.
2. Remove from the heat and add lemon rind, parsley and chervil. With the prawns laying on their shell and the tail meat exposed, brush the spice/herb/oil mixture on each tail.
3. The prawns will cook very quickly, so cook flesh side down for 30 seconds and shell side down for 1 minute.
