TIPS & HINTS

  • Serve with a wedge of lemon/lime, a squeeze of lemon/lime juice will bring the flavours to life.
  • Marinate large prawns in olive oil, lime juice and grated fresh ginger. Pan fry with a salsa of chopped coriander leaves, finely chopped preserved lemon rind and roughly chopped roasted red capsicum.
  • For a bit of spice, add finely chopped fresh chilli or Chilli Sauce (I like the Fountain Mild Chilli Sauce).
  • Chargrill asparagus on a BBQ or chargrill plate for a smokey addition to your dish.
