Homemade Sweet Chilli Sauce with Prawns

Hi everyone, I hope your day has been well. I am officially back to work this week and it’s nice to have a sense of normality again.

I’ve got a great recipe here if you love prawns, combined in a delicious sweet and chilli sauce. I would usually make curry prawns but I decided to go for something different. Overall, the sauce tasted amazing, had lots of flavour and complimented the prawns really well. I ate the prawns with brown rice which is more nutritious than other paler varieties.

Recipe: Sweet Chilli Sauce (serves 2)

Ingredients

1 tsp ground giner

2 tsp tomato ketchup

1/2 tsp chilli powder

2 tsp soy sauce

2 tsp soft brown sugar

1/2 tsp dried parsley

100ml water

2 tsp oil

2 garlic cloves – crushed

1/2 tsp corn starch

Small handful of spring onions

Method

  • In a small bowl, mix together the first 7 ingredients.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and add the garlic, keep on a low heat and once the garlic is slightly brown and the liquid mixture and turn up the heat to a gentle simmer.
  • Stir in the corn starch and wait a few minutes until the liquid reduces slightly.
  • Add the spring onions and prawns, cooking for a further 5 minutes or until the prawns are piping hot.
