Print Recipe


  • 2 naan bread (plain or garlic and coriander)

For the prawns

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • 150 g large prawns
  • ½ lemon (zest and juice)
  • Fresh mint and coriander (1 small handful of each, finely chopped)

To assemble

  • 2 handfuls of salad leaves
  • ¼ cucumber (halved vertically and sliced into half moons)
  • ¼ red onion (optional, finely sliced)
  • turmeric and yogurt dressing
  • 1 red chilli (optional, finely sliced)


For the naan

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  • Roll out a long piece of kitchen foil that will wrap round both naans.
  • Briefly hold each naan under the cold running tap so that they are thoroughly wet on both sides.
  • Place them next to each other on the foil and wrap them up well so the steam cannot escape (you can wrap each naan individually if you wish).
  • Place in the oven until hot – about 8 minutes.

For the red onion

  • Place the red onion in a sieve over the sink. Pour a kettleful of boiling water over it then immediately refresh it by running it under the cold tap. Tip the onion into a bowl and leave it to soak in cold water until you are ready to use it.

For the prawns

  • Melt the butter over a medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds.
  • Add the prawns, toss in the garlic butter, cook until prawns are pink throughout – 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the lemon zest and juice and the chopped herbs. Stir then remove from the heat.

To assemble

  • Unwrap the naans and place them on plates.
  • Top with the salad leaves, cucumber, prawns and red onion if using.
  • Drizzle over the dressing and sprinkle over some finely sliced red chilli if you wish.
