SALT AND PEPPER PRAWNS
This salt and pepper prawns dish from Rick’s Fruits of the Sea book is a classic dish featured on the menu at our café. The idea for this recipe came from a dish that Rick discovered on Lamma Island, Hong Kong where he was struck by the starkness of the accompaniments – just salt and pepper.
Mark O’Hagan, our Head Chef at Rick Stein’s Café, says:
“Salt and pepper prawns is a café classic. It has never left our menu because it’s such a popular dish with our customers. I love how you get to dig right in with your fingers and get gloriously messy with this dish. When the ingredients are all tossed together in a hot pan this dish has a nice smoky flavour that tingles your taste buds.”
