Caribbean Prawn and Sweet Potatoes in Coconut Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Karen Elizabeth

This recipe makes delicious use of the 'so good for you' sweet potato. Yams are a white version of sweet potato and can be used equally well. Try serving this with steamed rice, mixed with cooked peas ad sweetcorn. Taken from "Hot And Spicy Cooking": Colour Library
