Chilli, lime and coriander prawns

Chilli, lime and coriander prawns



  • ¼ cup peanut oil
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4 birdseye chillies, sliced
  • 500g green prawns , peeled with tails intact
  • 4 limes, juiced
  • ½ cup coriander leaves


In a frypan heat oil and butter and add chillies and lime juice.

Fry prawns in the chilli for 2 mins each side.

Remove to serving dish and toss in coriander.


  • This makes a great finger food and can be served on a tray with cocktail sticks.
  • It’s also great tossed through white rice noodles. It has a nice fresh taste and packs a punch with that chilli.
  • I wouldn’t recommend this for children. The flavours are a little too strong.
