1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 tsp. chopped red finger chilli
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
1 tsp. light soy sauce
1 tsp. corn flour
1 tbsp. cooking oil

Mix all of the ingredients except the cooking oil. Leave the prawns to marinate in the seasonings while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Add the cooking oil just before grilling. Grill the prawns for 2 minutes on each side.

For the dressing, mix the following ingredients together:

2 tbsps. lemon juice
1 tbsp. wholegrain mustard
1 tsp. garlic powder
1tbsp. light soy sauce
1 tsp. fish sauce
2 tbsps. honey
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1tsp. sesame oil

For the salad:

100 gms. uncooked soba noodles
1/4 c. shelled edamame
2/3 c. pea shoots
1/4 c. sliced spring onions

Cook the soba noodles in plenty of boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and refresh with cold water, then drain again. Boil the edamame in water for 5 minutes. Drain.

To assemble the salad:

Set aside 2 tbsps. of the salad dressing. Mix the rest with the soba noodles and the spring onions. Divide into two portions. Pile each portion on a plate to form a nest. Top with half each of the pea shoots, edamame and the grilled prawns. Drizzle each portion with 1 tbsp. each of the reserved dressing. Enjoy. 

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
