mince 2 garlic cloves or press, toss with the prawns, add 2 tablesp. olive oil and salt, marinate 30 -60 min.
meanwhile smash (only smash them) 4 more cloves of garlic, heat with the rest of the oil over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally
until garlic is lightly golden brown ( 4-7 min)
alow oil to cool completly, remove the garlic, discard.
thinly slice the remaining 8 cloves. return the skillet to low heat, add garlic, bay leave and chile, cook untill
