Number of Servings: 4


    5 tablespoons coconut milk
    1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
    2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
    1 small red chili, seeded, finely sliced
    2 cloves garlic, finely minced
    Juice of 1 lime
    2 ripe mangoes
    2 pounds raw tiger prawns or large shrimp, deveined, shells removed, tails intact
    2 teaspoons coconut oil
    4 large lettuce leaves, optional
    1 lime, cut into wedges, optional


1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine coconut milk, curry paste, cilantro, chili, garlic and lime juice and whisk together to blend. Set half of the mixture aside to use a dressing on the cooked shrimp.

2. Peel mangoes, then cut the side "cheeks" of flesh away from the pit and slice flesh into wedges. Toss prawns and mango in the marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Chop remaining mango from around the pits and add it to the reserved dressing mixture.

3. Heat oil in a griddle pan or wok over medium-high heat until hot. Cook the prawns and mango for approximately 30 seconds on each side, until prawns turn pink and the mango is softened.

4. Arrange prawns and mango on a serving platter or over the lettuce, if using. Drizzle with reserved dressing and serve with lime wedges, if using.
