Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Olive oil
10 larges Garlic cloves; thinly sliced
1½ pounds Giant prawns; peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon Minced arbol chile
½ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Fresh lime juice
1 \N Recipe Avocado Mayonnaise; see * Note

* Note: See the "Avocado Mayonnaise" and "Ancho Chile Mayonnaise" recipes which are included in this collection.

In a large heavy skillet, preferably cast-iron, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook very slowly, stirring frequently, until the garlic has turned golden, about 3 or 4 minutes. Be very careful not to let the garlic scorch or burn. Transfer the mixture to a shallow ceramic baking dish and let cool. Add the prawns and the chile to the garlicky oil, toss to coat them evenly, and refrigerate overnight, covered.

Make the mayonnaises and, when ready to serve, preheat a grill or broiler to medium heat. Grill the prawns for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, then transfer to a warm platter. Scatter the salt and lime juice over them and serve immediately, accompanied by the Avocado Mayonnaise and the Ancho Chile Mayonnaise. This recipe yields 6 servings.
