Simplest of dishes are usually the best and this one is no exception. I originally scaled back for one recipe but ended up making a half recipe for the sauce but one serve of prawns/shrimp as I was wanting enough sauce for the rice to soak up and it was not a disappointment absolutely delicious and oh so quick. Thank you TeresaS made for the Pick Me tag game under the 48 hour rule.
