Garlic Pepper Prawns

This marinade is very versatile, it can be used to flavour most meats and seafoods. Normally, there is a higher ratio of garlic to coriander root, but we like the taste of coriander and wanted that to be more of the dominant flavour in this marinade. Feel free to play with the amounts of each.

Garlic Pepper Prawns
6-8 coriander roots
2-3 garlic cloves
freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
10-12 medium prawns

Grind coriander roots and garlic cloves in a mortar until they make a rough paste. Add pepper, oyster sauce and soy sauce and mix to combine. Pour over prawns and marinade for 5-10 minutes. Stir-fry the prawns with the marinade until they turn pink, about 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately.
