Ingredients:  (Serves 4)
1kg raw or cooked prawns, peeled and de-veined
2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
3 tsp mild curry powder
3 tsp paprika
2 tsp lemon juice
2 cups coconut milk
Toasted coconut
Heat butter in a large frying pan.  Add onion, garlic and ginger and cook slowly until just beginning to turn golden.  Add curry powder and paprika and stir for 2-3 minutes.  Add salt, lemon juice and coconut milk and simmer until thick, stirring occasionally.  Add prawns.  If using raw prawns, simmer until they turn pink, about 5 minutes.  Cooked prawns will take only 2-3 minutes to heat through.  Sprinkle with toasted coconut.  Serve with boiled rice.
