  • 0.5 onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 0.5 lemon (te serve)
  • 1 pinch sea salt and black pepper


  • Finely chop the onion, garlic and parsley.
  • Put the prawns, onions, garlic and parsley in a bowl, mix well and leave to marinate for 15 minutes.
  • Put the prawns, all the marinade and the oil in the Actifry Genius XL bowl, leaving the paddle in.
  • Manually input the time to 8 minutes and temperature to 220C and press start.
  • Once cooked the prawns will be a nice rich pink colour.
  • Remove from the Actifry Genius XL and serve with lemon wedges.



  • Feel free to change up the flavours by adding either coconut or panko breadcrumbs, or even using a Mexican seasoning.
  • Serve the prawns with rice or salad or use them in tacos or a burrito bowl.
  • You can give this dish a veggie boost by adding some chopped bell peppers and courgettes with the prawns.
  • You can use frozen prawns, but make sure they are fully defrosted and any extra liquid is blotted off.
