How to make garlic prawns step by step

  • Step 1: Peel the prawns, remove the head, and do not forget to remove the intestines. To do it correctly, we recommend cutting the body of the shrimp.
  • Step 2: Peel the garlic and cut it into thin slices.
  • Step 3: Cut the chili into two or three pieces that are not too big.
  • Step 4: Wash and chop the parsley.
  • Step 5: Put a clay pot on the fire, add the oil and the garlic and chilies.
  • Step 6: When you see that the garlic begins to brown, it is time to put the prawns in the casserole. Leave it for two minutes.
  • Step 7: Remove the casserole from the heat and add the parsley.
  • Step 8: To serve it correctly, we recommend doing it with the same casserole (be careful not to burn yourself) and it can be accompanied by a few toasts of bread.
