Baked sesame prawns with roasted chilli dipping sauce
5:53pm Thursday 16th February 2012 in Eating In
FORGET mundane healthy cooking, what every girl looking to drop a dress size needs is food she can get her teeth into. So says Jennifer Joyce, author of new book Skinny Meals In Heels. Here's one of her recipes.
Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas mark 6. To make the sticky Chilli Dipping Sauce, heat the vinegar and sugar with a large pinch of salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer for five minutes or until syrupy. Remove from the heat and add the chilli flakes. Set aside until cool, then add the shallot.
Butterfly the prawns by making a deep cut down the back so they lay nearly flat. Whisk the egg white until just foamy, then dip the prawns in, allowing any excess egg white to drain off.
Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then roll in the sesame seeds. Place on a baking tray, spray with a bit of oil and bake for five minutes, or until they turn opaque and start to curl.
Serve warm, garnished with the spring onion, with the dipping sauce on the side.
