Oh, I do dream of food, and this is one of those dishes I’ve not yet cooked, but definitely will. I picture a balmy summer’s afternoon, near the sea, a big table with white linen tablecloth, various glasses, cups, plates and cutlery. A barbecue smoking away, bowls of salad, a fruit platter, maybe a cake. Strawberries. Bottles of wine, water. And people, young and old.


150g butter
10 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1 large thumb of ginger, grated
1,5 fresh cooked prawns
1 bunch of coriander, stalks finely chopped and leaves roughly chopped
Zest and juice of 2 limes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
(I would probably chuck in some finely chopped red chili)

Crusty bread, to serve


Take a large, wide, heavy-based saucepan or frying pan with lid. Put on a low heat and add the butter and garlic.
Fry very gently for 5 minutes, then stir in the ginger, prawns and coriander stalks (reserving the leaves)

Put the lid on the pan and cook for about 10-20 minutes, stirring gently frequently to mix all the flavours together.

Check that the prawns are piping hot, but don’t cook them (they were cooked already so they really just need warming through).

When they are ready, add the coriander leaves and chilies, stir through and place the pan on the table. Scatter the lime zest on top, squeeze over the juice and add plenty of salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve with crusty bread& dig in!
