POACHED PRAWNS

Ingredients:

1 kg green prawns

2 litres tap water

Juice of 1 Lemon

Salt

Method:

Add the lemon juice, salt and raw prawns to water and gently heat the liquid.

Cook on a gentle heat until the prawns have changed colour and are just opaque - this should take about 3 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the prawns, or they will become rubbery and unpleasant. Drain and refrigerate.

Variations: Extra flavour can be added to the poached prawns by using a stock, or flavouring the water with herbs and spices.
