Dublin Bay Prawns with Canary Mojo

Cigalas con Mojo Canario

Servings: 4

Prep Time: 50 minutes [PT50M]


16 large Dublin Bay prawns

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


For the mojo verde:

6 cloves garlic

a pinch of roast cumin seeds

1 bundle coriander

1/2 bundle parsley (optional)

1-1/4 cups extra virgin olive oil

4 tbsp sherry vinegar

fresh green pepper


Crush the garlic with rock salt and cumin to make a paste. Add the coriander and parsley. Continue to crush well and gradually add the vinegar and oil. The texture should be that of a light mayonnaise.

Separate the heads from the tails of the prawns. Cut open lengthwise and grill lightly. Place some of the mojo verde on top of each prawn. Press the prawn heads and catch the juices in a bowl. Heat for a few minutes, add 1 tbsp oil and serve with the prawns.
