    1. Peel the prawns, leaving the tails intact. Place in a bowl, season with a little salt, the sesame oil and soy sauce. Sprinkle with coriander and let marinate 20 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. In a small bowl combine the garlic, lemongrass, ginger, chilli, lime juice and zest, soy sauce and sesame oil.
    3. Arrange the lettuce leaves in a serving dish. Add onion, cucumber and capsicum then drizzle with the vinaigrette.
    4. In a hot frypan, saute the prawns about 5 minutes, turning so they cook evenly. Arrange the prawns on the salad and add a few sprigs coriander to garnish.
