How it's done


Using a sharp knife, cut open the prawns right to the tip of the tail. Open up the prawns fully into a "butterfly". Mix the prawns with the lime zest, lime juice and chilli pepper, marinate for approx. 10 mins.

Heat the oil in a wok or a wide-bottomed frying pan. Fry the prawns in batches for approx. 2 mins. per batch, remove from the pan and reduce the heat.
