Garlic Press


Get Prepped

a) Zest and halve the lime.

b) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

c) Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 1cm chunks. 

Into the Pan

a) Drain the prawns. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

b) Once hot, add the bell pepper and fry for 1 min, then add the prawns.

c) Season with salt and pepper and stir-fry for 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. They're cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.

d) Meanwhile, combine in a small bowl the Cajun spice mix, soured cream, the juice from half the lime and the mayo (see pantry for amount). TIP: Keep the other half of the lime for another recipe.

Assemble and Serve

a) Once cooked, add the lime zest and garlic to the prawns and fry for 1 min more, until fragrant. Remove the pan from the heat.

b) Spoon the creamy Cajun sauce into the bottom of your serving bowl.

c) Top with your cooked prawns and pepper, then sprinkle over the crispy onions to finish.
