DS a la carte

What exciting few weeks ahead! Stay tuned for the announcement, but for now I can tell you;

How would you like to go out to eat in Dubai and find a place where you can pick through a delicious a la carte menu I have created and cooked myself?! And not just any place, nor just any menu!!! I will go before I say too much,

Stay Tuned and till then feast with your family and friends on this amazing, quick, easy and fantastic garlic infused prawns; in bite size AKA:

Tapas: Gambas Al Ajillo


Serves: 4 Cook Time: 20 mins
  • 1.5 Kg prawns, peeled and deveined with tail kept in tact
  • 3/4 cup DS Premium Organic EV Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 garlic head, peeled and crushed
  • 1/4 cup spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 red chili, sliced (optional for spicy)
  • Salt & Black pepper to taste
  • A sprinkling of paprika to finish (optional)
  • Chopped parsley for garnish

Season the deveined prawns with salt and black pepper and set aside. Place the oil and butter along with the crushed garlic in an oven proof saucepan (traditionally a cast iron pot) and place the pan in a preheated very hot oven until the mixture is almost bubbling (around 10 minutes).

Add the seasoned prawns to the bubbling liquid and return to the oven for 5 minutes or until the prawns are cooked through. Make sure not to overcook, there is nothing worse than the rubbery texture of overcooked prawns.

Remove from the oven. You can either serve in the pan as is, sprinkled with some paprika (optional), or make toasted mini disks of Pan con Tomate, see the recipe on this link. Then place a prawn over each disk of the pan con tomate and drizzle with the prawn cooking liquid. Line the disks on the serving tray and serve hot, warm or cold.



Come back soon for everyone’s favourite: Patatas Bravas!

Today I read…

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I think there is a great deal of truth in this, don’t you? How come we always remember the effect people have on us? How come the cause and the means are not as necessary to us as the effect?
