Thai Spicy King Prawn Broth

A particular favourite of mine and Odo's, this can be made with red chilli if you fancy that extra kick.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 500g king or tiger prawns
  • 1 medium green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger, minced
  • One stalk lemongrass, cleaned and finely chopped
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 6 spring onions, cleaned and chopped
  • 3/4 pint vegetable stock
  • One large handful fresh basil, coarsely chopped/torn

What To Do

  1. Mix the prawns thoroughly in a bowl with the chilli, garlic, ginger, lemon, lemongrass and spring onions and leave for 1 hour to marinade.
  2. Turn out the entire bowl into a hot wok or frying pan and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until the greens of the spring onions start to fade.
  3. Add the vegetable stock, lower the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil. Serve over plain boiled rice and pour over plenty of the juices for the rice to absorb.
