Prawn coriander and sweet chilli dip is a perfect dip for the holiday season. It’s quick to put together, and is fabulous served on some toasted Turkish, or sourdough bread or for that matter anything you like as long as there is a crunch for the contrast of the creaminess of the dip.
Loaded with chunks of fresh prawns, cream cheese, sour cream, coriander and sweet chilli sauce along with zesty lime juice it makes a summer statement that’s incredibly quick to put together.
This is just the sort of dip we love to make for family and friends as it’s always popular, and smacks of summer with fresh prawns (shrimp). This dip is a favourite of ours for family gatherings. We like to picnic by the beach with everyone bringing a course to contribute to our family gathering.
Make this dip a day or two before serving and on the morning toast off the sourdough and allow to cool then bundle into a container along with a knife for serving.

Making Prawn Coriander and Sweet Chilli Dip Could Not Be Easier
This seriously could not be easier than mixing together cream cheese and sour cream then adding in lime zest, lime juice, sweet chilli sauce, chopped coriander, pepper and the prawns and give it all a good mix. Too easy!
There are prawns, and prawns. When making Prawn coriander and sweet chilli dip, we like to use either good quality fresh or frozen prawns obviously the beauty of frozen prawns is you can have them in the freezer for whenever the need arises. The briny taste of the prawns really injects a lot of flavour into this dip. However, if you’re using frozen thawed prawns you need to check the saltiness and may well need to add a little salt to lift the prawn flavour.
