Cooking on a cedar plank is one of the oldest known methods of cooking – here, we’ve paired that technique with the modern design of Roccbox to create a delicious background smokiness to these incredible Pil Pil Prawns and don’t forget to have some crusty bread on hand to mop up that insanely good oil…          

Step 1;

Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 4 hours to ensure it smokes well and doesn’t catch fire during the cooking process!

Step 2;

Slice the top off the bulb of garlic and double wrap in tin foil before chucking it in Roccbox for 15 minutes. Set to one side.

Step 3;

Mix together the pil pil ingredients and sprinkle 3 Tbsp of it over the prawns. Toss together and lay the prawns on the plank.

Step 4;

Turn the flame down to its lowest setting and pop the plank in the front third of the oven (I like to use a pair of tongs and a pallet knife here to help me move and turn the plank).

Step 5;

Cook the prawns for 2 minutes, rotate the plank and cook for another 2 minutes.

Step 7;

Squeeze the roasted garlic into a serving bowl and add half the oil – breaking the garlic up with a fork as you do so.

Step 7;

Add the hot prawns, the remaining oil and sprinkle over the parsley.
