DEVILLED KING PRAWNS

Serves 2

150g peeled, cooked, king prawns

Juice of half a lemon

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dash of chilli sauce

Pinch of caster sugar

1 tbsp olive oil

1 or 2 shallots

1 clove garlic

1 200gl tin plum tomatoes

½ tsp dried oregano

¼ tsp dried basil

75ml stock

20g butter

1 tbsp brandy

Chopped parsley for garnish

1 Spread the prawns out in a shallow, non-metallic dish, and sprinkle over the lemon juice, a good grind of pepper and a dash or two of chilli sauce, mix well, cover with clingfilm and set aside for half an hour to allow the flavours to develop.

2 Meanwhile peel and finely chop the shallot. Peel and crush the garlic clove. Then roughly chop up the tinned tomatoes.

3 Heat in a saucepan and sauté off the shallot and garlic until the shallot has softened, stir in the tomatoes and cook, stirring for ten minutes. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper, a dash of chilli sauce, pinch of sugar, and the herbs. Stir in the stock and cook for a further ten minutes, then lower the heat as much as possible to keep the sauce hot, but do not allow it to boil.

4 Heat the butter in a frying pan, Wrain the prawns and pat dry with kitchen paper, and fry, stirring all the time until lightly golden all over. Remove from the heat, pour over the brandy and set alight. Once the flames have died down put the prawns into two individual shallow bowls and pour over the tomato sauce. Scatter with parsley and serve with crusty bread.
