Large prawns with grapefruit salad and fenugreek creme fraiche

Don’t be delay this superb salad if you happen to’ve by no means butterflied a prawn: you’ll quickly get the grasp of it and it’s a neat ability to have up your sleeve. Serve with steamed rice and possibly some stir-fried Asian greens.

12 large prawns, shell-on and patted dry (950g internet weight)
90ml vegetable oil, for frying
Salt

For the marinade
6 garlic cloves, peeled
1½ tbsp fenugreek seeds
1½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp turmeric powder
1½ tsp caster sugar
1½ tbsp lime juice
Four tbsp vegetable oil
120g creme fraiche

For the salad
1 small ruby grapefruit (about 300g)
1 eschalot, peeled and finely sliced (50g internet weight)
1 pink chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
10g mint leaves
10g coriander leaves
1 tsp vegetable oil
2 limes
– juice ½ of 1 lime to get 1 tsp, and minimize the remainder into wedges, to serve

Utilizing sturdy kitchen scissors, snip off and discard the legs from every prawn. Subsequent, snip down the centre of the again of their shells, beginning just under the top and going proper all the way down to the tail. Subsequent, minimize down the centre of the top, ranging from the bottom of the neck. Don’t take away the shell.

Utilizing a serrated knife, minimize by way of the road you’ve made with the scissors, splitting the flesh of the top and physique lengthways; don’t minimize all through to the underside: you need the prawns to remain intact. Take away and discard the central “vein” (the intestinal tract; it’s suitable for eating, however the prawns look extra enticing with out it), then clear the top cavity with kitchen paper. Lay the prawns shell aspect up on a board and press down on each with the flat of your hand so it butterflies open. Flip over the prawns so that they’re now flesh aspect up, and put aside.

For the marinade, blitz all of the elements, besides the creme fraiche, with a 3rd of a teaspoon of salt. Put two teaspoons of the marinade in a small bowl with the creme fraiche, stir collectively and put aside – you’ll use this once you serve. Season the flesh aspect of the prawns with a 3rd of a teaspoon of salt in complete, then smother the uncovered flesh with the remaining marinade. Depart to marinate for at the least an hour (or in a single day, if you wish to get forward; if you happen to achieve this, take the prawns out of the fridge an hour earlier than you prepare dinner them).

For the salad, peel the grapefruit and minimize away any white pith, then launch the person segments by reducing in between the white membrane. Lower every phase lengthways into 5mm-thin slices – you must find yourself with about 80g of ready grapefruit items.

Gently toss the eschalot, chilli and herbs with the oil, lime juice and a beneficiant pinch of salt, then toss within the grapefruit slices.

If you’re able to serve, put a big, nonstick frying pan for which you’ve gotten a lid on a medium-high warmth. Add a 3rd of the oil and, as soon as it’s very popular, lay in a 3rd of the prawns flesh aspect down. Prepare dinner for 90 seconds to 2 minutes, urgent them down with a spatula so that they don’t curl up, till crisp and golden brown, then flip over the prawns, cowl and prepare dinner for a minute extra.

Transfer the prawns to a plate and maintain heat, wipe clear the pan, then repeat with the remaining prawns.
