Prawn & coconut curry Recipe

Prawn & coconut curry recipe
Jamie Oliver

A little goes a long way here. Using a bit of coconut cream, rather than a lot of coconut milk, gives you the creamy taste, without as much fat.


1 large onion
2 cloves of garlic
1-2 fresh red chillies
3cm piece of ginger
½ stalk of lemongrass
groundnut oil
2 lime leaves optional
400 g raw, peeled king prawns, from sustainable sources
200 g sugarsnap peas, mangetout or green beans
100 g peas
50 g coconut cream
100 ml organic vegetable stock optional
Thai fish sauce or other Asian fish sauce
1 lime


Peel the onion and finely slice along with the chillies. Peel and finely chop the garlic and ginger. Discard the outer layer of the lemongrass and finely chop.
Drizzle 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil into a pan and sauté the onion, garlic, chilli, ginger, lemongrass and lime leaves (if using) over a medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes, until soft but not coloured.
Add the prawns, vegetables, coconut cream and stock (or 100ml of water) to the pan. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the prawns are cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
Take the pan off the heat and add a splash of fish sauce and a squeeze of lime juice to taste.
Serve on a bed of rice (I like to garnish with sliced red chilli and coriander leaves) and lime wedges for squeezing over.
