4 limes, zested and juiced
4 green chile peppers, seeded and chopped

  1. Place the prepared prawns into a large non-metallic bowl. Zest the limes and add the zest to the prawns. Combine the lime juice, chiles, garlic, ginger and onion in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. You may need to add a little liquid.
