    prawns deveined and deshelled (I used the cooked prawns from woolies)

    fresh basil, torn

25 mins
Heat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Make a marinade using the basil and lemon infused olive oil, torn basil leaves and diced lemon.

Toss the prawns in the marinade.

Place on a baking tray covered in tin foil.

Sprinkle the paprika over the marinated prawns.

Make a parcel so the heat does not directly affect the prawns.

Bake in the oven for about 10 - 15 minutes (not too long as they are already cooked and you don't want them to become tough).

Sprinkle some herbal salt and cracked black pepper over the baked prawns.

Serve with jasmine rice, spooning over the sauce created in the tin foil.
