Spot Prawns with Orange and Tequila

a Gordon Ramsay way to cook them up from his Fast Food cookbook

Spot Prawns with Orange and Tequila

3 tablespoons olive oil

14 ounces fresh spot prawns

2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely sliced

Sea salt and black pepper

Generous splash of tequila

Juice of 1 or 2 oranges

Heat a large skillet, then add the olive oil. When hot, add the shrimp with the garlic and some seasoning. Pan-fry for 2 minutes on each side until the shrimp turn bright red and opaque.

Add a splash of tequila, carefully and standing well back as it may flambé. Pour in the orange juice and let bubble for a few minutes until the liquid has reduced. Transfer to a warm plate and serve immediately.
