Ingredients
  • 240g pack Asda Frozen Raw King Prawns, defrosted
  • 1 tbsp groundnut oil (or sunflower oil)
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 2cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and cut into slivers
  • 1/2 lime zest, grated
  • 3-4 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 lime wedges, to garnish
  • Crusty bread, to serve
Method
  • Drain any liquid from the defrosted prawns and pat them dry with kitchen paper.

  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the garlic and ginger over a low heat for 30 seconds until just cooked – don't let the garlic brown.

  • Add the prawns and stir-fry for 1 minute over a medium heat until they start to turn pink.

  • Add the lime zest and juice and cook until the prawns are completely pink. Garnish with lime wedges and serve with crusty bread.
