Chilli Prawns with Coriander and Lime

Cook's Note

If you would like to soften the butterbeans a little before using, put them in a bowl, and cover with hot water. Leave to stand for 10 minutes, then drain well.


Use finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley instead of coriander if you wish.

  1. 1

    Put the prawns in a large bowl. Add half of the coriander and the fresh chillies, and mix well. Tip in the butterbeans, and toss again.

  2. 2

    Arrange the rocket leaves in a large serving bowl or on 4 individual plates. Sprinkle over a little of the lime juice, a pinch of salt, and some black pepper. Add the remaining lime juice to the prawns, stir through, then taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.

  3. 3

    Spoon the prawn mixture over the rocket leaves, then drizzle the sweet chilli sauce over it, and sprinkle over the remaining coriander. Serve immediately.
