Using a small sharp knife, shave off pieces of lemon rind then cut into thin strips.
Heat the oil, garlic, lemon rind and chilli in a frying pan over low heat for 5 minutes or until aromatic but not coloured.
Increase heat to medium, add the prawns and cook for 1-2 minutes each side or until they change colour. Place prawns in pots and spoon over oil, making sure you include the chilli and lemon rind. Serve with bread.
