1 kilogram prawns
150 gram chopped onion
2 cloves crushed garlic
8 ounces water or white wine
30 grams finely chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt and red pepper

Preparation / Directions:

Wash the prawns thoroughly, 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 color. 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.
