How to make Prawns in Sherry:
Peel and crush (mince) the garlic and peel and finely chop the onion. Melt the butter in a frying pan (skillet), add the garlic and onion and fry very gently for about 10 minutes until the onion has softened but not browned. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Pour in the sherry, bring to the boil and continue to boil until most of the liquid has evaporated.

For a nice presentation, garnish the dish with a large whole prawn, crevette or gamba.
