M’s thai prawns

Coming home from work with no energy to cook at all (unusual for me) I said ‘honey, let’s get take out’. But ever trusty M whipped up the best simple weeknight meal EVER!

M’s thai prawns

2 cloves garlic
3-4cm grated ginger
1 green capsicum
1 big red chilli
1 can coconut milk
2 tbsps fish sauce
3 tspns brown sugar
Good handful raw prawns
Handful basil leaves

Fry the garlic, ginger, capsicum and chilli in some oil.
Add coconut milk, fish sauce and sugar, bring to boil.
Add prawns and basil – simmer till cooked.
Serve over noodles and enjoy!


  1. Wow, this is the kind of food I remember getting time to cook before the children!

    1. Thanks for your comment Bwendo. It's a surprisingly simple dish, although we do like it pretty spicy which I guess isn't child friendly!
