Recipe For Sichuan Pepper Prawns

The lovely Sichuan peppercorns are sitting in my spice drawer waiting to be used! And after the fantastic chicken I made I knew I could not leave it long before I found another use for them. We have a great supplier of prawns and so very little needed to be done in the way of preparation. I took them out of the freezer, defrosted them, patted them dry and viola, they were ready for some love and attention. You do not want to get over enthusiastic with prawns as given the cost, you want to actually taste the prawn meat when you eat them. These were simply butterflied, marinated, fried and served!

Sichuan Pepper Prawns Recipe
 
Ingredients
  • 6 - 8 prawns per person, depending on size, butterflied and cleaned
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, pounded and sliced
  • 2.5cm root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 15g butter
  • 15mls olive oil
  • 5mls Sichuan peppercorns, ground
Method
  1. make a marinade of the garlic, lemongrass, ginger and lemon juice
  2. put the butter and the olive oil into a frying pan and heat
  3. cook the prawns until they are done
  4. remove from the heat and sprinkle with the ground Sichuan pepper - just a small pinch per prawn will do
My Notes
Sichuan peppercorns have a slight numbing effect on the tongue so you do not want to be too generous with them

  1. These sound wonderful. I did have to smile though. I made salt crusted shrimp for our dinner tonight. I think we have a theme going between the two of us :-). I hope you have a wonderful evening. Blessings…Mary
