Tucker's Natural Coriander & Cracked Pepper Crackers
- Combine the preserved lemon zest (blanch zest in boiling water), garlic, anchovies and Sambucca in a non-metallic bowl. Toss the prawns in the mixture, then cover and put in fridge to marinate for 1-2 hours.
- Heat a medium sized frypan and add the anchovy oil. When the oil is hot, saute the prawns over a high heat until they turn opaque, approx. 2-3 minutes or until tender and cooked. Season the prawns with salt and pepper, remove from the pan and allow to cool.
- Finely chop the prawns and parsley and mix them together well. Whip the cream cheese and cream together to combine then fold this mixture gently through the prawns. Spoon the mixture into medium sized bowls or serving dishes and refrigerate until needed. Take them out of the fridge about 20 minutes before required.
- Serve with Tucker's Natural Coriander & Cracked Pepper crackers.
