Chilli and Lemon Prawns

This is stunning! The combination of flavours is perfect! Probably one for the grown ups unless you have a chilli loving child!

1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp runny honey
Handful of fresh parsley
1/2 an onion
3 cloves garlic
Small piece of cinnamon stick – about a third
1cm ginger root grated
1 fresh chilli – large red one – or several of the tiny red ones
Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 stick of lemon grass cut into smaller pieces
Salt to season

Olive oil to cook

  • Place all ingredients except prawns, lemon juice and zest and lemon grass in a food processor and blend until finely chopped
  • Add lemon zest, juice and lemon grass pieces and stir by hand
  • Peel prawns leaving tail on – remove any veins. Place in glass or ceramic bowl and pour over the sauce (stir to cover evenly). Season slightly with a bit of salt.
  • Place in the fridge for 2 hours to marinade
  • Before frying -remove lemon grass
  • Heat oil in pan/wok and add prawns. High heat – stir fry for 5 minutes
  • Serve with sticky rice, on top of sald or with the lemon linguini (in recipe section). Hey, they are so good you can even eat them as a snack on their own – but that might just be a bit indulgent….
