Prawns in garlic oil are a popular starter in Spain or are served as tapas.
Very tasty and very easy and quick to prepare.

6 cloves of garlic
2 dried red chillies, seeded and finely crumbled
¼ bunch of flat parsley (optional)

Heat about 1 cm high olive oil in a pan with a high rim.
Clean the garlic cloves, slice and add to the oil with the chillies and fry. When the garlic is lightly browned, add the prawns and fry for 2 minutes, turn and fry for another 2 minutes. Add salt to taste. When the prawns are pink, they`re done.
