( SERVES 6 )

Cos lettuce hearts with lots of crisp fried garlic is a classic Spanish tapas. I liked the idea of it with prawns so here is my version.
- Put the lettuce quarters on a serving plate, side by side.
- Place the prawns, garlic and 2 tablespoons of oil in a bowl. Mix well, but don’t break the prawns.
- Heat a frying pan over moderate heat and add the prawn mixture. Spread the prawns out and pan-fry until just cooked through and the garlic is browned. Season with a little salt
- Place the prawn, oil and garlic on top of the lettuce. Sprinkle the lemon juice and zest on top and serve.
