      I made this recipe for DD and DH today.
      Both enjoyed the prawns cooked this way, although both thought the recipe needed some sauce.
      I did not have sour dough bread, but had some crusty croutons to use up, so I used these instead, the breadcrumbs did turn out a little darker using them, but still they still worked quite weel. Although this was the only change to the recipe.
      So quick and easy to cook, and both DD and DH enjoyed the prawns cooked this way.
      Thanks for another great way to use prawns Pat.
