Lemony Prawns

I love prawns. And lemon. And corriander. This is a really quick recipe and it’s so tasty! It’s good as a light lunch, snack, part of breakast. I like to savour the taste of these prawns and the more lemon I add, the better! Chilli and lemon is a wonderful combination, I need to use it more.

Ingredients
salt
Pepper
Crushed Red chilli flakes
Fresh Lemon
Fresh Corriander
Prawns
Tiny bit of butter or ghee
You could also add a little crushed or minced garlic.

Method
See the images and captions below lol.
As good as coconut oil is, I would never use it on prawns. They have such a light delicate flavour and I think coconut oil would overpower them too much. But that’s just me… Hmm, soeaking of coconut oil, I’ve kinda abandoned it lately… oops?

The prawns curl up and get some 'colour' when they're cooked enough. Make sure you leave some sauce because it's uber tasty and tangy, just how I love it! Dry prawns are not cool.

Serve with pan-fried/roasted mediterranean vegetables and Tomato salsa. Add more lemon to the prawns after cooking if desired... it's good for you!
