  1. Rinse the prawns well and season them with Creole seasoning, salt and pepper. In a large skillet heat a tab of olive oil. Sauté the prawns for a couple of minutes to slightly pink, 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Remove the prawns from the heat and place them in a bowl, cover tight with aluminum foil and set aside.

  3. Return the skillet to the heat and add the wine, shallots and chives.

  4. Cook stirring until the wine is almost evaporated.
