Sesame & Soy Prawns
Serves: 2 adults or 3-4 kids
  • 180g fresh king prawns
  • 2 tbsp soy (or Tamari if you need this to be gluten-free)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 cm ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove or 2 small cloves, sliced
  • ½ a red chilli, finely chopped (optional)
  • coconut oil
  1. Place the prawns in a bowl and add the honey, sesame, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and chilli and mix to marinate for up to 10 minutes.
  2. Note, if you are really rushed you could just marinate the prawns in the sesame, soy and honey and leave the ginger, chilli and garlic out.
  3. Heat a little coconut oil in a pan (ideally a non-stick pan as the honey with caramelise quickly) and allow the pan to get moderately hot.
  4. Add the prawns and cook for a couple of minutes on each side or until cooked through. They will turn from grey to a lovely fresh pinky/coral colour.
  5. Allow the marinade to reduce down slightly in the pan and thicken up to start to coat the prawns lightly. Take the prawns out of the pan and place in a bowl or somewhere they can keep warm while you get on with the rice.
