Baking Tray
Aluminum Foil
Paper Towel


Get Prepped

a) Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.

b) Pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it. Pop onto a lined baking tray and set aside for now.

c) Drain the prawns, then pop onto a plate and pat dry with a paper towel.

d) Add the dried prawns and the plain flour (see pantry for amount) to a medium bowl. Toss to coat the prawns in the flour, ensuring they're completely coated.

e) Crack the egg (see pantry for amount) into a separate medium bowl and whisk.

Let's Bake

a) In a separate medium bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Central American style spice mix, 0.25 tsp salt and the oil for the breadcrumbs (see pantry for amount). Season with pepper.

b) Add the flour coated prawns to the bowl of egg and mix to coat well.

c) Dip the prawns into the spiced breadcrumbs, ensuring they're completely coated, then transfer to the tray with the garlic parcel.

d) Pop on the top shelf of your oven to cook until the prawns are crisp and golden and the garlic is soft, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. They're cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.

Make the Dip and Serve

a) While the prawns bake, finely chop the chives (use scissors if easier).

b) Once the garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork.

c) In a small bowl, mix the mashed garlic with the mayo and two thirds of the chives. Season with salt and pepper.

d) Once the prawns are cooked, transfer them to a serving platter and sprinkle over the remaining chives. 

e) Serve alongside your roasted garlic mayo to finish.
