The best way to enjoy these babies is with fresh bread and a glass of van Loveren Pino Grigio Rose.


  • ¼ cup pino grigio

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 tbs oil

  • ¼ cup of mint, parsley and coriander finely chopped

  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin

  • 1kg king prawns, peeled and deveined

  • zest of 1 lemon


  • Combine all the ingredients except for the prawns, oil and salt. Place into a Ziplock bag with the prawns. Seal tightly and massage the prawns through the bag. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Heat a pan until hot, add the oil and fry the prawns, turn carefully after a couple of minutes and cook for a further minute. Cook them for 2-3 minutes.
  • The key is to make sure the pan is hot enough and not to overcrowd them or they will stew and be tough.
  • Season and serve with fresh bread.
