Chilli and Lime King Prawns

Serves 4


  • 500g whole raw shell-on king prawns, de-veined
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp palm sugar, chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6-10 Thai chillies (to taste), chopped
  • Juice of 2-3 limes (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon oil for frying
  • Spring onion, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. In a small bowl, mix the garlic, chillies, palm sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce and lime juice until well combines.
  2. In a larger bowl, add the prawns then pour over the marinade. Mix to ensure marinade covered all prawns. Cover and leave for at least 30 minutes.
  3. After 30 minutes, heat a large pan with oil on medium-high heat.
  4. Once the pan is hot, fry the prawns for about 3 minutes on each side – until pink/orange.
  5. Garnish with chopped spring onions.
