  3. Add your peeled prawns and generously coat with the yoghurt mixture. Cover and set aside for at least 20 minutes, but ideally 1-2 hours. 
  4. While you wait for the prawns to marinate, finely slice half a red onion. 
  5. In a small bowl add the onions with 2-3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Add a small dash of water and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Mix this well, taste to check the balance, you want the pickling liquid to be tart with a hint of sweetness. Adjust to your liking. Once your happy with this, set it aside to pickle. 
  6. Rinse your lettuce and peel 9 lettuce cups off. Pat these dry and set aside. 
  7. Finely slice your mango into strips and set aside. 
  8. Once your prawns are done marinading in a medium heat pan or BBQ place a small amount of oil and put your prawns in to cook. Try not to move them around too much as the mixture will come off. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until perfectly cooked! Allow to cook slightly before assembling. 
  9. On a platter place your lettuce cups down, then add 2-3 slices of mango, 2-3 prawns and top with your pickled onions. Garnish with fresh coriander and salt!
