Coconut prawns with R2E2 Chipotle Sauce

 

r2e2 HFMINGREDIENTS:

  • 500g Prawns, thawed and peeled, leaving the tail intact

  • 3/4 cup of Breadcrumbs

  • 1 egg, whisked

  • 1 cup of Shredded coconut

  • Oil (Suitable for shallow frying)

For the sauce:

  • 1 R2E2 Mango

  • 1 tsp hot sauce (I used a chipotle hot sauce, but any one will do!)

  • Juice of 1 Lime

  • 1 tsp honey

  • Salt (be generous)

  • 1 tbsp Coconut milk or coconut cream


METHOD:

  1. Prepare your prawns; peel and de-vein, making sure that you leave the tail on! Set up 2 bowls, one with the whisked egg and the other with the breadcrumb and shredded coconut.

  2. Dip the prawn in the egg and then the breadcrumb/coconut mixture, ensuring it is coated evenly. Set aside on a plate or board.

  3. Using a shallow fry pan, add the oil and allow it to heat up. You can test to see if its heated by adding in a piece of shredded coconut – if it fries, it is ready. Add the prawns, making sure you don’t overcrowd the pan. Once cooked evenly on each side (1 or 2 minutes), set aside on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb the excess oil.

  4. Its time to make the mango dipping sauce; combine the mango, hot sauce, honey, lime, salt, and coconut milk into a food processor, blender or mortar and pestle. Season with salt to your taste.

Serve your coconut prawns with the mango chipotle dip. Enjoy!
