A glass of Corvo Bianco and some good company are the only things needed to enhance enjoyment of this delicately spiced dish inspired by Vietnamese cuisine.
To serve 4:
- 750 gr prawns

- 2 Chopped chillies
- 1 Teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 Teaspoon curry powder

Step 1 – Shell and devein the prawns and rinse under cold, running water. Heat the clarified butter or oil in a pan and gently sauté the onions. When the onions have softened and become golden, add the garlic, chilli, turmeric and curry powder. Cook over a medium heat for about a minute while stirring.
Step 2 – Add the coconut milk and salt and simmer for about 10 minutes over a low heat. Add the cleaned prawns and mix in gently. Cook over a low heat for 12 minutes.
