Pan Seared Prawns

This recipes works well in a hot oven (700ºF) using a live fire and a hot, preheated steel pan.


  • 1 lb of uncooked shrimp (peeled or unpeeled)


  • 1-2 gloves of garlic, minced
  • 2-3 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
  • 4 Tbs best olive oil
  • 1 Tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper


Fire your oven, and keep the fire going. This dish cooks at high heat with a live flame.

Clean and butterfly the shrimp, then marinate for an hour in the garlic, parsley, oil and vinegar.

A few minutes before you are ready to eat, pre-heat a cast iron grill pan or steel pan in a pizza-hot oven. Get it hot.

Pull the pan out of the oven, and pour in everything. Grill for 1-3 minutes, until the tops are brown and bubbling.
