"This recipe is based on one from that the DH and I changed a little to suit our tastes. I have not included the time for peeling the prawns, leave the tails on if you wish but we don't. Feel free to change the chilli amount we like a bit of bite. We served ours with fried rice but will be trying with the rocket and bread, we would not use the coriander as we don't care for it. This would serve 2 as a main or 4 as an entree/starter."
