I have heard of some of the weirdest pregnancy cravings like ketchup and cucumbers or onions with mustard. I tend to crave things from childhood like roast plantain and groundnut (yes I was that kid) but in order to maintain a healthier diet for myself and the human growing inside I decided for the new year its time to make a switch. As they say ‘New Year, New You’.

Here’s a recipe that will satisfy and excite your tastebuds. It’s sweet, sour and fiery. The perfect combination.

Here’s what you need

  • 200g raw, peeled tiger prawns
  • Red and green chillies (to your liking)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bunch coriander, leaves and stalks separated
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 lime, juice only
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3cm piece ginger, minced
  • 5 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • A handful of green beans
