Australasian Prawns

What's the big idea?

Another great example of Australian "fusion" food; simple, easy to cook food with a definite Asian influence - in this case, Thai.
Serve with boiled rice and a vegetable dish of your choice.

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • About 1lb large prawns, deveined and peeled but with tails intact
  • 1 stem lemon grass, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 red pepper, roughly chopped

  • 1 pint fish stock
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce (Nam Pla)
  • 1 x 400ml tin coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

What To Do
