  • 2 tablespoons rice flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground dried peppercorn medley
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 600g raw peeled prawns, tails intact
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 long red chilli, finely chopped

  1. Combine flour, pepper and salt in a large snap-lock bag. Add prawns. Seal bag. Shake to coat prawns in flour mixture.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Cook half the prawns, gently tossing, for 3 to 4 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with 2 tablespoons of remaining oil and prawn mixture.
  3. Return prawns to pan. Add coriander, garlic, chilli, lemon juice and remaining oil. Cook, tossing gently, for 2 minutes or until heated through. Serve prawns with lemon wedges.
