Http API Call in NodeRed

I am wanting to get crypo prices from coinmarketcap. I have an API Key and the url ` But where do i start!. I have an inject, function, http request node and a debug node. But have never tried anything like this before. Is this quite a difficult thing to accomplish for a beginner, or pretty straight forward. I can normally find some similar code and just modify it to suit but i am at a bit of a loss with this one.
