Jervois Steak House May Newsletter

A Word From Simon Gault:

When looking for the perfect steak always pick a well-marbled cut which will be juicer and richer. Always allow the steak to reach room temperature prior  to cooking, this will allow the meat to cook evenly.

The JSH Prawn Taco

Recipe of the month: PRAWN TACOS


1⁄2 cup castor sugar
40g grated fresh ginger (use a potato peeler to remove skin)
50ml soy sauce
1 small red chilli, finely chopped
20ml water

1 tablespoon cream
1 tablespoon Mayonnaise
1⁄2 medium garlic clove, finely minced

12 wonton wrappers
150ml canola oil

24 cooked & peeled prawn tails 21/25 in size
(Filleted in half)

4 vine-ripened tomatoes
2 spring onions
1⁄4 medium telegraph cucumber


Place the sugar in a thick-based saucepan and put on a low heat until sugar melts and just starts to get a caramel colour. Add the ginger, soy sauce and chilli. Simmer on a low heat until the caramel sugar has dissolved then add the water, strain through a sieve and cool. This sauce keeps well and can be used on barbecue items such as pork, chicken and prawns.

Mix the cream and Mayonnaise together, then add the finely minced garlic. Combine well.

Using an 8cm-round pastry cutter, cut circles from the wonton wrappers. In a small fry pan heat the oil until it begins to shimmer. Using tongs to hold the wontons, fry them one at a time until crispy. Remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to drain.

Remove the cores from the tomatoes and discard the seeds. Roughly chop the flesh into brunoise. Thinly slice the spring onions. With a potato peeler, remove the cucumber skin and slice in half lengthways. Discard the seeds. Cut the flesh into batons.

Lay one taco on each plate. Top each taco with a layer of tomato, spring onion and cucumber filling then the sliced prawns. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of Caramel Ginger Sauce on each one then lay the remaining tomato, spring onion and cucumber on top. Add 1 teaspoon of aïoli to each then top with the second taco. It will help with the assembly if you first divide each portion of the tomato, spring onion and cucumber mix in half. When assembled serveimmediately.

Serves 6 tacos
