Spicy Garlic Prawns

Garlic has a natural affinity with prawns; enhancing their subtle flavour without being overpowering. You can use other vegetables such as aubergine, broccoli or cauliflower instead of the courgettes.

8 oz (225 g) peeled prawns
1 lb (450 g) courgettes

1 level teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 large tomatoes

1. Cut the courgettes into sticks about 3in (80mm) long and 1/4 in (5 mm) thick. Peel and crush the garlic, de-seed and finely chop the chilli. Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the garlic, grated ginger and chilli for about 3 minutes.

2. De-seed and roughly chop the tomatoes and add them to the pan. Increase the heat
and cook for a further 4 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pan and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Season to taste and serve as a hot starter or light snack.

5. Serve the dish piping hot straight from the pan, if you wish. Take care not to overcook the ingredients.
