Ingredients
  • 875 gms fresh or frozen king prawns, heads removed and peeled (defrosted, if frozen)

  • 1 x 31 gms pack fresh basil, leaves picked
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 tsp ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 romaine lettuce, leaves separated
Instructions
  1. Put the prawns and piri piri sauce in a bowl and toss to coat. Cover and put in the fridge to marinate for 30 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing by putting the basil, oil, garlic, ground almonds, Parmesan and lemon zest in a small food processor and whizzing until combined. Season.
  3. Thread the prawns onto skewers (pre-soaked for 15 mins, if wooden) and grill for 5 mins on each side, or until pink and cooked through (alternatively, cook indoors under a hot grill or in a smoking griddle pan). To serve, arrange the lettuce on plates and top with the prawns. Drizzle over the basil and lemon sauce.
