A delicious pancake topping of prawns, mangetout and red pepper - impress your friends and family this Pancake Day with this innovative twist on savoury crepes.

Heat the oil in a pan and cook the pepper for 3 minutes. Add in the prawns and mangetout and cook for a further 3 minutes, until the prawns are almost cooked through. Add the spring onions, garlic, ginger and most of the coriander. Cook for a further minute until prawns are cooked thoroughly.

Mix together the sauce ingredients together until well combined. Spoon the prawn mixture on the pancakes, drizzle over the sauce and scatter with the chopped mint leaves.

Tip: Add a handful Japanese cabbage to bulk out the filling, if you like.
