Lemon Grass Prawns Recipes

Ingredients :

5 stems lemon grass, white part only, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

3 tsp grated fresh ginger

2 tbsp oil

1 red onion or 5 red Asian shallots, cut into wedges

500g peeled and deveined, raw medium prawns with tails intact

Method :

Place the lemon grass, garlic, ginger and 1 tbsp of the oil in a food processor or spice grinder, and process to a smooth paste. Heat a wok over high heat, add the remaining oil and swirl to coat. Add the onion and stir fry over high heat for 1 minute, then add the paste and stir fry for a further 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the prawns to the wok, cook for 2 minutes, and stir in the combined lime juice, lime leaves, fish sauce, palm sugar and 1 1/2 tbsp water. Cook for another 2 minutes, or until the sugar has completely dissolved. Garnish with the coriander leaves and serve with steamed rice. If you can't buy peeled raw shrimps, buy 1 kg and peel them yourself. This will add 15 minutes to your preparation time.
