24 Raw tiger prawns with shells on

1 tsp chilli flakes

1 tbsp Olive oil

Sea salt

Black pepper

2 egg yolks

2 tsp Dijon mustard

6 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

150 ml vegetable oil

Step 1: Prepare The Prawns

Marinade the prawns with the garlic, chilli flakes and olive oil. Then cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, or overnight if possible.

Step 2: Make The Aioli

Meanwhile, put the egg yolks, mustard and garlic in a food processor and blitz until smooth. With the motor still running, add the vegetable and rapeseed oils in a slow, steady stream until the mixture is thick. Add the lemon juice, blitz again and season to taste.

Preheat the barbecue to a high heat. Remove the prawns from the fridge and bring to room temperature. Cook the prawns for 1-2 minutes on each side until pink.
