Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This is such a tasty recipe. I cooked the prawns in two batches for 2 minutes each batch, until the edges of the prawns started to turn pink and then returned them to the pan with the remaining ingredients as instructed for another 2 minutes. The prawns had a nice light crunch on the outside and very tender on the inside. I served the prawns with gluten free wraps instead of the pita and it made for a nice lunch :-)
