Heat a frying pan and add a little olive oil. Sweat together the shallots, ginger and the garlic. Add the lime zest, a pinch of ground coriander, the saffron, sugar and coconut milk to the pan. Strain the mixture and season.

Peel the prawns and use the tip of a sharp knife to remove the black digestive tract.
Add the prawns to the liquid along with a splash of fish sauce and a squeeze of lime. Poach for 3 minutes until cooked.
