Sprinkle some salt, crush one garlic clove add to the prawns, mix well, leave aside for a few minutes, while you prepare and chop the rest of the ingredients. Fry the prawns in olive oil for a few minutes, remove from the pan, add some white wine to the pan, the rest of the crushed garlic cloves, tomatoes, breadcrumbs, parsley and the seasoning. Let it simmer and reduce about 10 minutes, return the prawns back into the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Serve with bread to mop up the juices.
