Head on Shrimp With Chile, Parsley, and Garlic

Ingredients:                             

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 12 head-on, tail-on prawns or jumbo shrimp (1 ½-2 pound)
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for grill
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

     

Method:

  1. Prepare grill for medium-high heat; oil grate. Combine garlic, parsley, red pepper flakes, and 4 Tbsp. oil in a medium bowl.
  2. Working one at a time, use kitchen shears to cut along the length of the back of each prawn just deep enough into flesh to expose vein; remove. Toss prawns with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in another medium bowl; season with kosher salt and pepper.
  3. Grill prawns, turning occasionally, until shells are bright red and meat is cooked through (it will look slightly opaque), about 5 minutes. Transfer to bowl with garlic-parsley mixture and toss to coat; season with kosher salt and pepper. Transfer prawns to a serving platter and pour garlic-parsley mixture over; sprinkle with sea salt. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
