Weekends must be a little special but time is always an issue. So a simple but glamourous recipe with prawns.

  • Prawns, deveined : 400g.
  • Honey, 1 tablespoon.
  • Lemon, 1 tablespoon.
  • Garlic, finely diced.
  • Sesame Oil.
  • Chilly Flakes.
  • Salt.
  • Sesame seeds.

Mix together the garlic, lemon juice, honey, sesame oil, salt and chilly flakes. Taste and adjust accordingly. The quantity must be such that if all the prawns are immersed in it, there will be about a centimeter of marinade on top of them.

Put in the prawns and let it marinade for no more than 30 mins.

Heat a pan. Using a spoon, take only the prawns with as little marinade as possible and put it in the pan. Spread them out. When all are spread out, get to high heat and let them cook undisturbed for 3 minutes.

By this time the prawns will end up getting a little stuck to the pan. Add the remaining marinade and use it to free up all the prawns and continue stirring them. Keep the heat high. Add the sesame seeds. Mix well. Switch off when the prawns are cooked. But continue stirring for another 2-3 minutes.
