The flavour in this simple dish is absolutely incredible. Our new Sogeri Wild Ginger from Papua New Guinea, combined with freeze dried green peppercorns, makes a tantalising and zingy marinade for the prawns. The herbs are an excellent addition, but if you don’t have them handy, the prawns alone are great.


  1. Pound ginger powder, peppercorns and garlic cloves in a mortar and pestle to create a paste, then coat prawns and leave to marinade, refrigerated, for at least 1 hour.
  2. Heat a wok to high with coconut oil, then add prawns and all of the marinade. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until prawns are opaque. Turn off heat and stir through herbs, if using.
  3. Serve immediately with steamed jasmine rice, or as part of a banquet.
