Ingredients

100g wild sea purslane, available from Abel & Cole
2 good glugs extra-virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, unpeeled, bashed with a rolling pin
1 tsp chilli flakes
800g large sustainable raw shell-on tiger or king prawns
Grated zest and juice 1 lemon, plus wedges to serve
100ml good quality dry white wine
Fresh baguette or sourdough to serve

 

Method

1. Pull the purslane leaves from the stalks; discard the woody stalks.

2. Heat the oil in a wide frying pan and add the garlic, chilli and sea purslane. Fry for 1 minute, then add the prawns. Cook for 2 minutes on each side until bright pink, then add the lemon zest, juice and white wine. Turn up the heat and simmer briskly for 3 minutes. Don’t cook off all the wine, as the acidity is key to this dish.

3. Remove from the heat and serve straight from the pan with hunks of fresh crusty baguette or sourdough.

SHEET PAN SHRIMP BOIL

SHEET PAN SHRIMP BOIL

Easiest shrimp boil ever! And it’s mess-free using a single sheet pan. That’s right. ONE PAN. No newspapers. No bags. No clean-up!

I have a hot date waiting for me…

With four short legs. Massive ears. And a sweater vest.

Yes.

My Valentine’s date tonight is Butters. And we’ll be staying in, away from the crowds, the flowers and the jewelry.

Instead. We have this, and it’s better than roses or a blue Tiffany box.

It comes on a sheet pan with shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn. Plus. There’s plenty of garlic.

So maybe it worked out that I didn’t have a human date tonight. Because Butters doesn’t discriminate against garlic breath.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound baby Dutch yellow potatoes
  • 3 ears corn, each cut crosswise into 6 pieces
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 (12.8-ounce) package smoked andouille sausage, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until just tender and parboiled, about 10-13 minutes. Stir in corn during the last 5 minutes of cooking time; drain well.
  3. In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic and Old Bay seasoning.
  4. Place potatoes, corn, shrimp and sausage in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Stir in butter mixture and gently toss to combine.
  5. Place into oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque and corn is tender.
  6. Serve immediately with lemon wedges, garnished with parsley, if desired.
