Chilli and Lime Prawns

image

Fresh and zingy best describes these prawns!

The chillis are from the garden, from memory they are a Diablo chilli, so small with a medium heat, feel free to use any chilli and adjust the heat level to suit your taste.

I would usually leave the tails on the prawns but we have Grandpa staying with us at the moment and he doesn’t “do” shells so I have peeled them completely.

Serves 4-6.

Ingredients

1kg prawns, peeled and deveined

1 tablespoon olive oil

juice of two limes

4 cloves garlic, sliced

3 small chillies

small bunch fresh coriander

salt and pepper

Method

Marinade the prawns in the oil, lime juice, garlic, chilli, 2/3 of the coriander and a little salt and pepper for 15mins.

Heat a large frying pan over hot heat until very hot or use the BBQ hot plate.

Once the pan is hot add the prawns and stir fry for 2 mins until cooked.

Serve garnished with the remaining coriander.
