  • For the dip: In a dry pan toast the peanuts until they have taken on some colour (takes about 5 minutes). Purée with the other ingredients in a food processor.
  • For the marinade: Mix all ingredients. Remove the prawn intestines if necessary. To do this, cut through the shell, but do not remove the shell (or heads). Mix the prawns with the marinade and leave it for at least 15 minutes.
  • Switch oven to highest grill setting. Spread the prawns in a single layer on a baking tray.
  • Grill until nicely coloured on one side (about four minutes), then flip over and let colour on the other side (another 2-3 minutes).
  • Sprinkle with coriander, squeeze lemon juice over and serve on a tray with the peanut dip.
