Spicy Baked Prawns

Before the weekend starts, I am here with a pretty simple, "it feels like summer" dish: spicy baked prawns. In case you do not want to use whole prawns, but rather prefer peeled ones, well then you have less work to do, but do not forget to devein the prawns before cooking. Besides, if you use peeled prawns, I suggest to fry them for a few minutes in a mixture of oil and butter, or grill them if you feel like. Serve the fried prawns with fresh and crispy white bread and some slices of lemon.

16 whole prawns
150 g yoghurt
2 big cloves of garlic
1 small piece of ginger
1 chili (+ 1-2 teaspoons of chili powder if desired)
1 tk garam masala
1 teaspoon salt

lemons for serving

Rinse the prawns in cold running water, then cut the prawns along the inner curve in half, devein, then rinse again. For the marinade mix joghurt together with grated ginger and garlic, sliced chili, chili powder and garam masala. Season prawns with salt and drain in the marinade. Let it stand in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Bake for 10-12 minutes on 200°C depending on their size. Serve with fresh parsley and lemon.
