            Stephen Ceideburg
       8    Cloves Garlic, Crushed
       2 tb Minced Corriander Root
       2 tb Fish Sauce
   1 1/2 tb Brown Sugar
     1/2 ts Sugar
   1 1/4 lb Cleaned Prawns
            Oil For Frying
   Spanish garlic prawns are yesterday’s fashion, but are still so
   enjoyable that most of us are prepared to eat them and to hell
   with friends and colleagues next day. Perhaps the vast quantity
   of coriander root in this Thai version has magical properties
   because the after-math doesn't seem to be severe.
   Prepare a marinade by mixing together 8 crushed cloves of
   garlic, 2 tablespoons washed and minced coriander root, 2
   table- spoons fish sauce, 1.5 tablespoons brown sugar and 1/2
   teaspoon pepper. Add 500 g of shelled and cleaned prawns and
   leave to marinate for 15-30 minutes.
   Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a frying pan, add the prawns and
   their marinade and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes or just until the
   prawns are pink. Stir in the juice of a lemon and serve
   immediately with rice and sliced tomatoes and cucumber.
