When we posted our Gazpacho recipe last week, a reader immediately asked if we had a recipe for this dish, which is probably the most popular tapa in Lanzarote – prawns with garlic.
Let’s talk about the terracotta dish first – it’s not essential, but you can buy them all over Lanzarote, and they add an authentic touch.
For 4 servings
200ML of olive oil (not extra virgin)
Large knob of butter
750g raw prawns peeled and de-veined (feel free to butterfly them if you want)
2 small dried or fresh red chillies (leave whole if you don’t like to spicy or slit them if you do)
6 cloves garlic sliced thinly

This year’s Ironman was the 24th in Lanzarote, and the island served up some of the toughest conditions ever.
The swim was bumpy, with one of the support kayak’s commenting that he hadn’t seen so many people pulling out before in that part of the race.
The wind was extremely strong during the bike section, with the athletes having to battle directly into wind for the 100KM section with the longest climbs. The gusty conditions also contributed to more than the usual number of crashes on the bike course.

OK, we admit it. Gazpacho isn’t really a Lanzarote recipe, but it’s perfectly suited to our climate, which is why we’ve adopted it here on the islands.
Gazpacho is believed to have come to Spain from Arabia with The Moors, and that’s why it’s most associated with the region of Andalucía.
We’ve spent years trying various recipes for gazpacho, and we’ve modified them to come up with our own.

We’ve booked a lot of holidays recently for families with teenage children. It can be an awkward time for 13 to 17 year olds on holiday with their parents – they’re not old enough to go out and do their own thing, but in many cases trawling around the usual attractions, or just lazing by the pool aren’t very exciting options.
So we’ve put together a list of eight things most teenagers will enjoy:
A scuba try dive
The diving schools here all offer a “try-dive.” It’s a chance to get into the ocean, in a safe and shallow beach and to experience the joy of breathing underwater and seeing the amazing variety of sea life here, up close and personal. If your teenager really enjoys it, they can then go on to do an Open Water course and become a qualified diver.
We recommend Island Watersports in Puerto del Carmen.
