Gambas al Pil Pil

"Gambas al pil pil" is a very popular tapas and racione here in Andalucia, these chill garlic prawns go well as side dish or the best way - cooked in a cazuela over the BBQ, keep plenty of fresh bread to hand for mopping up that lovely hot olive oil!

1. About 10 - 15 Prawns (not pre-cooked and frozen)
2. Chilli and Garlic (use as much as you like, depending on your personal preference)
3. Olive oil
4. A good earthenware dish. (this tapa is both cooked and served in the dish)

How to cook:
1. Finely chop the chilli and garlic and place in the dish with the olive oil. You need enough oil to cover all ingredientes once in the dish.
2. Wash and peel the prawns and place in the dish.
3. Cook in an oven for roughly 10-15 minutes or until the prawns are thoroughly cooked.
4. Serve immediately with a basket of fresh bread.
