Ingredients

  • 500g carrots, sliced on the diagonal
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g fresh, raw, peeled cold-water prawns
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 large, mild red chilli, finely sliced on the diagonal
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted
  • Fresh flatleaf parsley, to garnish

Method

  1. Blanch the carrots in boiling water for a few minutes, until just tender but still with plenty of bite. Drain and refresh under cold water until cool.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or wide pan over a medium-high heat. Add the prawns and stir-fry for 2 minutes, until they’ve all turned pink. Add the garlic and chilli and stir-fry for about 1 minute, then remove from the heat.
  3. Throw the carrots into the same pan, add the lemon juice and stir together. Season with salt, and tip into a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with the cumin seeds and garnish with as much parsley as you fancy.
