How to Make Prawns cooked in tender coconut shell

  • Shell, clean and remove heads from fresh prawns.
  • Chop into small pieces.
  • Slice the onions in half and then slice lengthwise very fine.
  • Slit green chillies.
  • Grind mustard seed to a very fine paste with a little water.
  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients, finally adding oil and then mix thoroughly.
  • Stuff the daab with this mixture and use the top half-inch slice as a lid. Seal with a piece of foil to cover the top of the daab.
  • Bake in a 350 degrees F for approx. 1 hour in which time the prawns should be cooked and the mustard oil should have risen to the top of the shell.
  • This dish is best when served in the daab shell and makes a glamorous addition to a buffet table.
