  • Heat the oil in a pan and cook the chillies, garlic, ginger and ground coriander for 1 minute, stirring all the time. Add the coconut milk and 800ml water and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Then add the fish sauce, lime zest and juice, sugar and spring onions. Simmer for 4 minutes.

  • Add the prawns and fresh coriander, and simmer until the prawns turn pink, which means that they are cooked. If overcooked, they shrink and become tough.
