As seen on Today with Maura and Dáithí.


Serves 4

  • 40 g butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • Good pinch chili flakes
  • 500g frozen prawns
  • Salt & pepper
  • Bunch flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 courgette, grated or spiralised


  1. Melt half or all of the butter and add the garlic, the chili.  When hot (but don't let the garlic burn) add the prawns and turn up the heat. 
  2. Cook them out, tossing regularly so they are well coated in butter and garlic. 
  3. Season with plenty of black pepper and just a little salt. Add the chopped parsley, the lemon juice and finally the courgette.  Mix well and when it’s hot through and the prawns are fully cooked, spoon onto plates.
  4. Eat immediately.
