Fresh coriander

¼ cup(s), chopped, plus extra leaves to serve

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

¼ cup(s), chopped, plus extra leaves to serve

Ground cumin

1 tsp

Ground paprika

¼ tsp

Dried chilli flakes

¼ tsp, a pinch

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

¾ cup(s), (180g)

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp

Lemon(s)

1 medium, cut into wedges, to serve

Instructions

  1. Combine 3 teaspoons lemon juice and half the garlic in a small bowl. In a large bowl, combine coriander, parsley, cumin, paprika, chilli flakes and remaining lemon juice and garlic. Add prawns and stir to coat. Cover and chill for 1 hour to marinate.
  2. Meanwhile, add yoghurt and cinnamon to reserved lemon juice and garlic. Stir to combine. Season.

Notes

TIP: If you’re short on time and you have the budget, buy ready peeled prawns – make sure they are fresh, not frozen.
