Method

  1. Preheat the oven according to the packet instructions.  Put a baking tray in the oven to heat up for 5 minutes. Tip the potatoes onto the tray and roast for 30-40 minutes until golden or according to the timings on the packet.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a large wok and add the lemongrass and chilli and cook for 1 minute until starting to turn golden. Add the babycorn, pepper, mangetout and asparagus and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are just tender.
  3. Add the prawns to the pan with the coconut milk and fish sauce.  Continue to cook until the prawns turn pink. Season well.
  4. Crush the roast potatoes roughly and divide between two plates. Spoon some of the sauce over the top of the potatoes first, then pile the prawn and vegetable mixture on top. Finish with the peanuts, spring onion and coriander.

Coronation Potatoes With Mango, Raisins and Almonds Recipe

Coronation Potatoes With Mango, Raisins and Almonds

"As you all loved the potato salad I posted a few weeks ago I thought I should share another lovely potato recipe for summer salads and feasts. This one is bursting with flavour and it’s coronation inspired sauce is just a dream. The sauce is made of a delicious blend of spices, from curry powder to garam masala, cinnamon and cayenne, which are mixed with lemon juice, tamari and coconut. The tender potatoes are then tossed with the sauce and scattered with juicy chunks of mango, flaked almonds and raisins. I love this served with big bowls of quinoa and veggies for a beautiful summer meal with friends."
