  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok and gently fry the shallots for 3-5 minutes until softened. Stir in the garlic and fennel seeds and cook for 1 minute.

  3. Stir in the prawns and season well. Cook until they’ve turned from grey to pink, then stir in the cucumber and the lemon juice. Warm everything through in the pan.
  4. Divide among four plates, top with the soured cream then scatter over the parsley.
