Method

  1. Place the brown rice in a pan with lots of cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-25 mins or until tender. Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in some cold water (to prevent them burning). Add the mangetout and soy beans to the rice for the final 5 mins of cooking. Rinse under cold water, draining thoroughly.
  2. Toss the rice with the sesame oil and mix in a large bowl with the spring onions, coriander, chilli and seasoning.
  3. Heat a grill. Place the skewer ingredients in a bowl with a few grinds of black pepper. Give everything a good stir, making sure the prawns are well coated. Thread prawns onto the skewers and lay on a baking sheet. Grill for a couple of mins each side, turning, until prawns are cooked through. Serve with the rice salad and drizzle over any of the cooking juices.

I also used dark miso paste, as the light stuff is very difficult to get ahold of. This was something different and was quite tasty. The rice salad is very bland, and the prawn recipe doesn't really make sauce to have with it.

I had a dark miso paste already so used that, and the prawns were delicious. It felt like a supper food meal - very healthy!
