Forget the takeaway tonight, because jumbo prawn 'scampi' are so simple to whip up at home. Serve with minty peas and a homemade tartare sauce for dipping and have a Fish Friday to remember.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Jumbo Prawn Scampi & Chips With Tartare Sauce

Boil a kettle

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into thick chips

Add the chips to a baking tray with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until crisp

2 Jumbo Prawn Scampi & Chips With Tartare Sauce

While the chips are in the oven, slice the sugar snap peas in half diagonally

Add them to a pot of boiled water with a generous pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook for 5-6 min or until very tender, then drain and set aside

3 Jumbo Prawn Scampi & Chips With Tartare Sauce

While the sugar snap peas are boiling, chop the capers roughly

Add the chopped capers to a bowl with the mayonnaise and a pinch of salt and pepper

Squeeze in the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon and stir it all together – this is your tartare sauce

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges

4 Jumbo Prawn Scampi & Chips With Tartare Sauce

Pat the jumbo prawns dry with kitchen paper

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a very generous drizzle of vegetable oil (enough to fully coat the bottom of the pan) over a high heat

5 Jumbo Prawn Scampi & Chips With Tartare Sauce

Add the cornflour to a bowl with the cayenne pepper and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Add the jumbo prawns and toss in the cornflour mix until they are fully coated – these are your coated jumbo prawns

6 Jumbo Prawn Scampi & Chips With Tartare Sauce

Once the pan is hot, add the coated jumbo prawns and cook for 6-7 mins, turning occasionally, until the jumbo prawns are browned all over, crispy and cooked through – these are your jumbo prawn scampi

7 Jumbo Prawn Scampi & Chips With Tartare Sauce

While the prawns are cooking, strip the mint leaves from their stalks and chop finely, discard the stalks

Return the pot to a medium-low heat with the drained sugar snap peaschopped mint, a very large knob of butter and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Cook for 1-2 min or until warmed through – these are your minty peas
