Pan Grilled Prawns (with Z'hug)
gms tiger prawns; deveined and deshelled
Salt; to season
Lemon wedges; to serve
semi dried chilli flakes
dried cilantro/coriander leaves
ground black pepper
To make Z’hug:
Combine all the ingredients, grind if necessary and store in an airtight container.
To prepare the final dish:
Clean and pat dry the prawns.
In a non reactive bowl, marinate the prawns with Z’hug and season with salt. Mix well and keep for 15-30minutes.
Brush enough oil and heat the grill pan to high. Pan grill the prawns in batches till done.
Serve hot with lemon wedges.
I have used Gourmet Garden’s semi dried chillies and herbs; but you can substitute with any brand you have access to. Or you can use fresh ingredients to make a wet spice marinade.
