    I'mPat's Note:

    this recipe is based on one from that the DH and 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 use the coriander as we don't care for it. This would serve 2 as a main or 4 as an entree/starter.

      Wow what a lovely recipe I'm Pat. We enjoyed the prawns prepared this way. Made exactly as written but didn't use the rocket or cilantro option. The prawns were perfectly flavored and cooked resulting in tender, juicy little treats. Loved the heat and citrus flavor. It was a lovely dish served over steamed rice. Thanks for sharing.
