30 g
 Finely chopped parsley
 Crushed garlic cloves
150 g
 Chopped onion
1 kg
 Prawns
 Glass water or white wine
 
 Salt and red pepper



Instructions:

Wash the prawns thouroughly, breaking off the feelers or legs which are too long. Fry the chopped onion in a heavy frying pan until golden. Add the prawns and continue cooking until they turn red in colour.

Season and add a glass of water or dry white wine to the pan, then the crushed cloves of garlic and a light sprinkling of paprika. Cover the pan and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. Check the seasoning, sprinkle over the fresh parsley and serve hot.
