How to make prawns with curried peanut butter

Difficulty: Easy
  • Total time 30 m
  • Cooking 30 m

We prepare a sauce in which we will then cook the prawns. To do this, we poach the chopped onion as finely as possible in 2 tablespoons of olive oil flavored with a splash of sesame oil. If we want it spicy, we also add the chilli cut in very fine julienne.

Add the tablespoons of peanut butter to the pan. When it falls apart, we add the fresh cream or cream and dissolve everything in it. At this point, the kitchen has to smell incredible so if you want to surprise the family with this dish, close the doors tightly so that they do not notice what is coming.

We peel the prawns and crush the heads to enrich the sauce we are preparing with their juices. We remove the intestines, (that little black vein that is on the back) making a longitudinal cut and once clean, we add the prawns to cook in the sauce and add a teaspoon of curry powder.

Sprinkle with very chopped coriander and turn off the heat. We prepare a garnish by cooking the basmati rice in lightly salted water for 12 minutes and take it to the table very hot so that each one can serve a little rice, some prawns and a tablespoon or two of the sauce.
