Recipe

Serves: 4 (as a starter) Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 6-7 minutes, plus 30 minutes infusion Total time: 16-17 minutes, plus 30 minutes infusion

Ingredients:

  • 600g frozen blanched and peeled prawns, defrosted
  • ½ small head Romaine lettuce, shredded
For the dressing
  • 200ml Coconut Milk
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2.5cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 stalks fresh lemon grass, tender inner core only, chopped
  • 150g pot Total 0% Fat Free Greek Strained Yogurt
  • 10g fresh mint, chopped, plus 4 small sprigs to garnish
  • Grated zest of 1 lime, plus 2 tsp juice
  •  

Method:

  1. To make the dressing, place the coconut milk in a medium saucepan with half the chilli, and all the ginger and lemon grass. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Leave to cool for about 30 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.
  2. Strain the dressing through a sieve into a bowl. Stir in the yoghurt, mint, lime zest and juice, and the remaining chilli, season lightly and then stir in the prawns.
  3. Divide the Romaine lettuce between 4 small serving dishes and spoon the prawns and dressing over the top. Serve immediately, garnished with the reserved mint sprigs and a slice of lime, or a little more red chilli, finely sliced.

Tips:

Prepare the coconut infusion the day before, cover and leave in the fridge until ready to use – this will allow the flavours to really develop.

The prawn cocktails can be assembled up to 1 hour before serving, if kept chilled.
