Ingredients How to make


  • 100 g Raw King prawns defrosted
  • ¼ tsp Whole black peppercorns
  • ¼ tsp Dried chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp Cumin & Coriander mixture
  • 5 g Garlic (finely chopped)
  • 5 g Ginger (finely chopped)
  • 30 g Red onion (sliced)
  • 30 g Green pepper (sliced)
  • 30 g Red pepper (sliced)
  • 3 g Coriander (separate the leaves from the stalks)
  • 1 ½ tsp Tamari
  • ¾ tsp Mirin
  • 60 ml Bone broth

How to make

  • Marinate the prawns using tamari, mirin, black pepper, cumin, ground coriander, chilli flakes, garlic, ginger and coriander stalks for at least 20 minutes.
  • Heat a deep frying pan or wok on a medium heat and add the bone broth.
  • Add the onions and peppers to the pan and allow to cook for a few minutes.
