How to pan-fry prawns

One of the quickest, easiest ways of cooking prawns. Try adding a sqeeze of lemon at the end of cooking for a touch of acidity.

Place a frying pan on a medium-high heat and add a dash of vegetable or rapeseed oil and wait until the pan begins to smoke
Season the shelled prawns with salt and place in the hot frying pan until golden
Turn the prawns over and fry on the other side for 1-2 minutes


Try this method in Alfred Prasad's Prawn, melon and rocket salad.
