How to make Garlic basil prawns

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.
