The fresh chilli adds a delcious spicy flavour to the prawns. This is a recipe from the old family cookbook, an suggests to serv on a bed of spaghetti, but rice is just as good.

Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #88 tag game and what a winner. DH gobbled these down. I did serve it over some rice and "gilded" Zucchini#457965. Thank you for posting.

Great flavor and very easy. I couldn't find a fresh red chili today so subbed a Serrano chili. Just the right amount of heat.

We enjoyed this thanks Tis! I made the recipe for two of us using half the prawns and oil, but all the rest of the ingredients. I tasted the tomato sauce mix and ended up adding in 3 tablespoons of Chinese black vinegar to cut the sweetness-it ended up just right for me with Russ saying it was as sweet as he'd like it to be. I served this over risoni pasta because it cooks so quickly!
