    1. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Mix thoroughly. Dredge prawns in flour mixture.
    2. In a large frying pan, saute prawns in olive oil for 5 minutes over high heat. Toss prawns often to prevent burning. Transfer prawns with a slotted spoon to a serving dish, leaving the oil in the pan.
    3. In the same pan, saute the garlic, shallot, parsley and oregano over medium heat for 3 minutes; stirring constantly. Spoon the mixture over the prawns. Return pan to the heat. Preheat the grill for medium heat.
    4. Pour the wine and brandy into the frying pan and ignite with a match or lighter. When the flames die down, stir to loosen any browned bits on the bottom of the frying pan; pour over prawns.
    5. Place the serving dish of prawns under preheated grill for about 2 minutes.
