  1. Toast the bread and keep warm. Heat the oil in a wok, then cook the garlic and chilli until sizzling. Turn the heat up, add the prawns, then cook until pink. Remove from the heat, then add the lemon juice and coriander. Season, then serve piled on toast with rocket leaves.
  2. Tip To butterfly prawns, make a shallow cut all the way along the back of the prawn. You will see a blackish line - pull it out with the tip of your knife. As the prawn cooks, it will curl into a 'butterfly' shape.
