Saucy Prawny kinda Thai Style
I knocked up this little meal together and it was one of those events where it actually turned out quite well. The thing I didn’t know until later is that generally but not absolutely, most people sizzle the lemon grass whole with the meal whilst cooking then take it out. I went one step further and actually ground it up with everything. To me it was fine, but some of you might like it this way.
It was all in all an easy to make and easy on the tongue plus eye meal to make 🙂
175g Large King Prawns
1 x large carrot, thinly sliced
1 x tablespoon of teriyaki sauce
2 x packs of Angel Hair Style by Slendier, Organic Konjac Vegetable (they say this should feed 4 but it was more like 2 or we are large eaters)
1 x red onion (chopped finely)
1/2 cup of frozen peas
1 x 400ml coconut milk
1 x tablespoon of ghee
1 x tablespoon of fish sauce
A handful of freshly chopped coriander (I had none so had to use seeds)
salt and pepper to season
1 x lemon or lime according to taste
1 x chilli (keep as many seeds as you want according to how hot you like things)
3 x large galic cloves
1 x tablespoon of sesame oil
2 x stalks of lemongrass (or leave it out and sizzle in the meal at the end)
2 x teaspoons of ground turmeric
1 x thumb & half ginger
Add the teriyaki sauce to the prawns, mix and set aside.
Put all the ingredients for the paste except for the sesame oil in to a blender, once blended remove and mix in the oil.
Heat up the ghee in a large pan, cook the onions, carrots and peas for five minutes.
Then add the paste, mix in well, then the coconut milk, just under the amount in the tin, then the prawns.
Meanwhile empty the angel hair in to a colander and rinse well. Get a kettle ready to boil.
Simmer the prawns in the coconut and paste mix for 4-5 minutes until they turn opaque, then add the coriander & fish sauce. Add the juice of the lemon or lime to taste.
Meanwhile, boil the kettle, then pour in to a pan, put the angel hair in the pan and leave it in there for a minute to heat through. Then strain again and the meal should be ready to serve once seasoned & garnished.
The Angel Hair that I bought was very low calorie, only 10 cals per packet, source of fibre, reduced carb and gluten free.
