  • 2 lemongrass
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Slice the red onions as thinly as possible; then, scatter onto a serving plate with the juice of 1 Florida Grapefruit.

2. Sprinkle the peanuts and fresh mint over the onions along with a drizzle of olive oil; put to one side while you cook the prawns.

3. Chop the red chilli and lemongrass before adding to a pre-heated frying pan with a splash of vegetable oil.

4. Cook the spices for 2 minutes to bring the flavours together; then, add in the sugar and juice of the remaining Florida Grapefruit.

5. Boil the mix together until the sugar dissolves and creates a syrup.

6. Add the prawns and cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until the prawns turn pink.

7. When cooked, spoon the shellfish and the sauce over the top of the red onion and peanut salad.
