SZECHUAN TWICE-PEPPERED PRAWNS

SERVES 4

CALORIES PER SERVING: 98

Szechuan pepper (which actually comes from a berry) and black peppercorns are both good for calming the digestion.

INGREDIENTS

255g/9oz raw peeled king prawns

1 tsp Szechuan peppercorns

3/4 tsp salt crystals

1 tsp black peppercorns

2 tbsp groundnut oil

A large squeeze of lemon

METHOD

Place the Szechuan pepper, salt and black peppercorns in a pestle and mortar or grinder, and grind to a fine powder.

If using a pestle and mortar, sieve the mixture to remove any unground husks.

Pat the prawns dry and mix in the pepper and salt mixture.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and add the oil.

When hot, add the prawns and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn pink.

When prawns are cooked, squeeze a little fresh lemon over the top and serve.

Squid is also a good alternative for this recipe. For a vegetarian version, use firm tofu, cut into cubes.
