1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp fish sauce
1 tbsp finely diced ginger
1 tbsp finely diced fresh mild red chilli
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 prawns, shell and halved
dill, mint, coriander, parsley, plus more dill to garnish
extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
1/2 lemon, for garnish
Mix turmeric, fish sauce, garlic, chilli, lemon zest and olive oil together in a bowl. Using your hands, coat the prawns liberally in the turmeric mixture.
Heat a dry frypan until it's very hot, than add the coated prawns. This will only take 2 -3 minutes to cook. Keep stirring as you go.
Make a bed of fresh herbs on a platter and scatter the cooked prawns on top.
Squeeze lemon juice over the whole platter, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and granish with more fresh dill and half a lemon.
