I scaled this back for one serve and used a dozen medium Queensland banana prawns but in this case my eyes were bigger than my belly and I could only get through 7 of them so the other 5 were enjoyed this morning in an omelet otherwise made as per recipe and thoroughly enjoyed, thank you TeresaS made for Pick Me tag game.
