Garlic Prawns on Potato and Rocket Rosti

Garlic Prawns on Potato and Rocket Rosti

Posted 2017-06-11 by finyfollow

Garlic prawns on their own are delicious, and are even more delicious made on a potato and rocket rosti, with a yogurt sauce.

I also made a honey and rocket salad to go with these.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3

For the prawns
3 cloves garlic, chopped finely
500 g green prawns, peeled, tails left on

For the sauce
Just over ¼ cup Greek yogurt
1 tbsp garlic chives
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp thickened cream
½ tbsp basil, chopped (optional)

Potato rosti
450 g potatoes
½ cup rocket, roughly torn
1 tbsp plain flour

For the sauce
  • Combine all the ingredients, add salt and pepper to taste, and mix well.

  • For the potato rosti
  • Peel and grate the potatoes, and squeeze out as much moisture as you can - I always do this in a clean tea towel.

  • Combine the potato, rocket and flour in a bowl, add some salt and pepper to taste, and then mix it well.

  • Heat a bit of oil in a non stick pan, and cook the mixture, using about a quarter of it for each potato rosti - I did two at a time.

  • Press the mixture down a bit to form about a 12 cm rosti, and cook over a medium heat for about 6 - 7 minutes or until it is golden on the bottom.

  • Turn and cook a further 5 minutes on the other side.

  • Drain on some paper towel and put in a very low oven to keep warm while you cook the rest.

  • For the prawns
  • Mix about 2 tbsp olive oil and the garlic in a small saucepan, and cook over a low heat for 6 - 8 minutes or until the garlic begins to change colour.

  • Meanwhile, heat a tbsp oil in a large frying pan, and add the prawns and cook for a minute.

  • Add the oil mixture and cook a further 1 - 2 minutes, making sure you do not overcook the prawns or they will become tough.

  • To assemble
  • Put a potato rosti on each serving plate, add some of the yogurt sauce.

  • Top each one with some garlic prawns.

  • Drizzle with a little of the garlic mixture left over, and serve. I served with my rocket salad.
