Stir-fried tangy prawns

Stir-fried tangy prawns


“Prawns are useful to keep in the freezer for emergencies – they can be cooked in a blink and in myriad ways, helping you make a meal out of simple ingredients in minutes. In Iran, you eat seafood only if you live near the sea. My grandma used to call prawns ‘joonevar’ (Farsi for ‘insects’) because of their appearance when whole, and she would never eat them, but I love them in all their shapes and sizes. They always make a dish feel special. I love eating this dish with rice, but you can serve it with bread or any grain you like.”

• Vegetable oil for frying

• 2 large onions, halved, then thinly sliced

• 7.5cm piece fresh ginger, cut into matchsticks

• 3-4 fresh lime leaves (or dried soaked in a little hot water), rolled and thinly sliced into ribbons

• 6 red pickled chillies, thinly sliced
