Seared prawns with tomato, chilli and coriander (camarones a la Mexicana)

  • SERVES 4
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 500 g green banana prawns, peeled (see Note)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 small white onion, finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 3 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 jalapeño chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ tbsp lime juice
  • ¼ cup chopped coriander, chopped
  • steamed white rice, to serve
  • lime wedges, to serve

Heat the oil in a large, heavy based sauté pan over high heat. Add the prawns and salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the prawns change colour, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium, add the onion and garlic, and cook for 2 minutes until the onion begins to soften. Add the tomato and chilli, cook for 1 minute, then add the lime juice and coriander and season to taste. Serve with rice and lime wedges.

Note

• If buying peeled prawns you’ll need about 250 g.
