Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Sweet Chilli Prawn Lettuce Cups

Run a small knife along the back of the king prawns, cutting halfway through (make sure not to cut the whole way through) to butterfly the prawns 

2 Sweet Chilli Prawn Lettuce Cups

Peel and finely chop the garlic

3 Sweet Chilli Prawn Lettuce Cups

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chopped garlic and cook for 30 sec or until fragrant

4 Sweet Chilli Prawn Lettuce Cups

Once fragrant, add the butterflied prawns and chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) for 3 min or until they're cooked through – these are your garlic chilli prawns

Once done, transfer the prawns to a bowl and set them aside to cool 

 

5 Sweet Chilli Prawn Lettuce Cups

Meanwhile, cut the roots from the little gem lettuce[s] and separate the leaves

Pick 6 [12] of the biggest lettuce leaves – these are your lettuce cups

6 Sweet Chilli Prawn Lettuce Cups

Cut the lime[s] into wedges

Slice the red chilli[es] finely

7 Sweet Chilli Prawn Lettuce Cups

Add the chilli jam to the cooled prawns and give everything a good mix up – these are your sweet chilli prawns
