Camarones al Ajillo (Prawns in Garlic Butter)

There are times in your life when all you can think of is nothing and this is my case today! I have had a very busy weekend and I started my week with a very busy day and I really want to share this recipe with you guys since Friday, but for some reason my brain doesn’t work, I am errr how do you call it?? My brain is in strike, can it be such as thing??

So for that reason I won’t go into much details about this recipe, all I can say about it, it is that it was my dad’s speciality and it brings me very warm and cosy memories of him in the kitchen preparing the garlic butter for the prawn

It is a quick recipe, so there is no excuse, you must do it! It can be an excellent starter dish or a main serve with rice and salad. I hope you have a lovely week!
