King prawns with padrón peppers - this is one of those dishes which is more than the sum of its parts. Quick and easy to prepare, it is nonetheless impressive and needs no extra seasoning as the flavour comes from the prawns and peppers themselves. You can use a greater quantity of smaller prawns, but the dish works best with large, succulent ones.
