Instructions

Get Prepped
1

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Set aside half the garlic, then pop the other half (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it. Place onto a baking tray and, when the oven is hot, roast on the middle shelf until soft, 10-12 mins. 

c) Meanwhile, remove the pistachios from their shells, then roughly chop. Zest and cut the lemon into wedges.

d) Peel and grate the remaining garlic (or use a garlic press). Halve the red chilli lengthways, deseed, then finely chop (prepare less if you'd prefer things milder).

Bring on the King Prawns
2

a) Drain the prawns. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

b) Once hot, add the prawns. Season with salt and pepper and stir-fry for 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns.

c) Once the roasted garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork in a medium bowl.

d) Mix the mayonnaise, harissa paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and three quarters of the chopped pistachios into the bowl of mashed garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

 

Finish and Serve
3

a) Add the chopped garlic and chilli to the prawns and fry for 1 more min, then remove the pan from the heat. Stir through your lemon zest. IMPORTANT: The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.

b) Spoon the pistachio & harissa aioli into the bottom of your serving bowl.

c) Top with your cooked prawns and sprinkle over the remaining pistachios.

d) Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.

Enjoy!
