Spicy prawns

Spicy prawns

This spicy prawns recipe comes from Morocco. M’hammar is one of the four basic flavour combinations of Moroccan cuisine, with its main ingredients being garlic, paprika and cumin. With the addition of chopped red chilli, this prawn dish is worthy rival to the popular garlic prawns. In this recipe the spice gives a flavour, not heat. Prawns are available either raw or cooked, in or out of their shells. Cold-water prawns (which are the smaller, more standard prawns) are usually peeled, cooked and frozen on board ships. The most sustainable sources are from the North East Arctic and Canada. Warm-water prawns, such as tiger and king prawns are farmed and it is best to choose those that are organic or from a certified fishery.
