Garlic Prawns with Multigrain Bread


200 gm prawns (without tail)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
10 large cloves of garlic (slivers)
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
Orange Rind
1/3 Cup Spanish White Wine
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro (Sprigs)
Fresh Multigrain bread (Slice)


In a heavy frying pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat.
Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté for about 1-2 minutes, but be careful not to let it burn.
Raise the heat to high and immediately add the prawns, sauté for 1-2 minutes, and deglaze the pan with white wine.
Stir well, and then sauté until the shrimp turn pink.
Grate some orange rind for a tangy flavour.
Remove from heat and transfer prawns with sauce to a warm plate or serve right from the pan.
Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Warm a pan and drizzle extra virgin olive oil over a slice of multigrain bread.
Serve hot prawns over toasted multigrain bread toast.
Garnish with cilantro and lettuce.
