2 tbsp olive oil
560g large prawns (20 to 25 per pound), peeled and deveined
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 tsp dried chilli flakes, or more to taste
180ml dry white wine
10g finely chopped fresh basil leaves
300g grape tomatoes, halved
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then saute the prawns, turning over once, until just cooked through, about 2 minutes. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a large bowl.

2) Add the garlic and chilli flakes to the oil remaining in the skillet and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the wine and cook over a high heat, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.

3) Stir in the basil and tomatoes and season the sauce with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Return the prawns to pan and cook just until heated through.
