Ginger and Tamarind Prawns Recipe

Feel like your prawns are a bit uninspiring these days? For the perfect blend of sweet and tang, try our flavoursome and unique take on a prawn stir-fry that will leave you wanting more.  

INGREDIENTS: 

300g raw tiger prawns 

2 large garlic cloves, minced 

2 tbsp ginger paste / fresh ginger, minced 

Red chilli, to taste 

2-3 tbsp tamarind paste 

Lemon juice, to taste 

Pinch of stevia 

METHOD 

Mix all the ingredients together, except the prawns, in a ziplock bag to make the marinade. 

Add the raw prawns to the bag and marinate for 1 hour, or overnight. 

In a non-stick pan, tip out the marinade alone, retaining the prawns, and cook until it reduces into a very thick caramel-like sauce – do not let it burn! 

Add the prawns and cook until white.  

Tip: Keep an eye on your prawns. Overcooking will turn them tough, and no one wants that!
