Ingredients
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 15g coriander, leaves chopped
  • 240g raw peeled king prawns
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 100g mayonnaise
  • Zest 1 lime and juice ½ lime
  • 2 brioche buns
  • 100g rocket
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
Method
  • Mix the spring onions with the coriander in a large bowl. Stir in the prawns, then transfer to a chopping board. Roughly chop until you get a fine, mince-like paste. Cover and chill for at least 30 mins.

  • Divide the prawn mixture into 2. Cover your hands with some of the olive oil and shape each into a patty.

  • Heat the remaining oil in a large nonstick pan over a medium to high setting. Add the burgers and cook for 2-3 mins on each side until golden.

  • In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the lime zest and juice.

  • Remove the burgers from the heat. Slice the brioche buns in half and toast until golden.

  • Spread the buns with the mayo then sandwich the burgers, rocket and chilli in the buns to serve.
