  • Heat the pan with the teaspoon of oil and add the garlic and grated ginger cook for a few second then add the spices with half a cup of water stir and leave for two mins and add the courgettes and cook until the courgettes have started to soften.
  • Then added the tinned tomatoes and salt and pepper leave for a further 5 mins.
  • Add the prawns 5 mins before you want to serve the meal (if you cook the prawns for too long the turn very rubbery) let them warm through for a min or so, add the coriander lemon juice and more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Stir through and serve with rice. Yummy!
