Prawn Satay with Prosciutto and Potato Cakes

Prawn Satay with Prosciutto and Potato Cakes

Posted 2016-12-12 by finyfollow

I like all satay as I love peanut butter, and have not tried a satay with prawns before.

Teamed with these tasty potato cakes, it was a meal that was slightly "different" and a great family one.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes plus marinating time
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 2

For the mash
600 g peeled potatoes, chopped
30 g butter
¼ cup milk
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
For the potato cakes
Small egg, beaten
1½ spring onions, chopped
2 slices Prosciutto, chopped
Bit of garlic, crushed
2 eggs, beaten slightly -leave a bit for coating
1½ cups breadcrumbs
For the satay
1 - 2 tbsp peanut butter (slightly melted)
½ cup coconut milk
Bit of ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp soy sauce
½ tsp coconut sugar
½ tsp chilli powder
½ tbsp lime juice
250 g shelled raw prawns , de-veined

For the mash
  • Boil the potatoes for about 15 - 20 minutes or until they are tender. Allow to cool.

  • Mash with the rest of the mash ingredients, remembering to leave some of the egg for coating the patties, and add some pepper.

  • For the potato cakes
  • Using approximately 2 - 3 tblsp of the potato mixture, form into a patty (or whatever size you want).

  • Dip them into the left over egg and breadcrumbs and press the breadcrumbs till they are well coated.

  • Repeat this with all the patties.

  • Put some oil in a large non stick frypan and over a medium heat, cook the patties in batches for about 4 minutes on each side.

  • For the prawns
  • I bought shelled, de-veined prawns however if you are buying ones with shells, take off the shells and de-vein them.

  • Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly - it is a good idea to heat the peanut butter slightly before adding as it will then combine better with the other ingredients.

  • Add the prawns and stir so the are all coated.

  • Put them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile light your BBQ or if you do not have one, use a griller, or you could fry them in a bit of oil.

  • Soak some wooden bamboo skewers (or use metal ones) thoroughly, and thread the prawns onto these - I put four on each skewer. Any more than that and it is difficult to get them off when cooked.

  • Grill them on the barbecue for about 2 minutes each side, basting frequently with the sauce. Do NOT overcook them or they become tough - they just change colour and are ready when slightly pink.

  • Serve with the potato cakes, and a salad or I served it on lettuce leaves with a few grapes.
