Thai style king prawns from Vietnam. With coconut, lime leaves, and lime juice.
A prawn dish which was intended to be consumed as part of an Asian salad with Asian pickles. I chose to make something different with them.
I made a Thai style sauce, using a teaspoonful of Thai spices, with red peppers, onion, coconut, garlic and four green finger chillies This was allowed to simmer for ten minutes before the prawns were added.
The prawns were pre-heated in a steamer for about ten minutes. Add to the sauce, and simmer for three to five minutes.
Served with basmati rice on a spiral of dark soy sauce. Garnished here with two padron peppers.
