Fried Prawn Cakes



These turned out okay, but somehow just managed to miss the mark. They were a bit floury and lacked a bit of bite. I reckon adding some chilli to nigella's recipe would lift them. She also recommends having them with mayonnaise, but they were better with just lime juice squeezed over them. I only had cooked prawns, which maybe meant they lacked the flavour that would come from using fresh raw prawns.

- Mince 250g raw prawns and put in a blender together with 1 clove garlic, 2 chopped spring onions, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 50g flour, 4 teaspoons sherry and 2 tablespoons of water.
- If you want to add some bite, add some cayenne pepper or a finely chopped chilli.
- You should have a firm mixture that can be spooned into a frying pan.
- Fry in olive oil for 1-2 mins on each side depending on their thickness.
- Eat with some lime juice and chopped coriander.
