"This is an old standby of mine - it is spicy but you can control the heat just cut back on the chili, mustard and horseradish. I don't consider it hot hot just nice and tangy. Great for a buffet. Very nice served with rice. You may serve these as an appetizer on toothpicks. You may also pan fry the prawns - just add a tablespoon of olive oil to a skillet over medium heat put the prawns in the pan, single layer, pour in the chili sauce and stir fry . When the sauce is bubbly stir fry for about another 4 minutes"

These had a little too much horseradish in them for me, so I will cut back a little next time. I cut the recipe in half as I was making it for just me. They were quite good and with the adjustment I will make them again! Thank you for this one Bergy! Linda
