      Well done Tomoko! I had king prawns so I hunted to find a different recipe for them. I loved this recipe because I always have the ingredients on board. It was incredibly quick to cook, even though I did cook for a little longer than stated to really enhance the flavours. I had some bacon that I chopped up & threw in as well that did not hurt at all. I did have to use ground ginger because I did not have fresh. That also did not hurt. I used a full can of coconut cream so it was not as thick. I served it on steamed rice. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it because it actually had flavour.

      Wow! This was amazing!! I added some fresh julienne of ginger and a handfull of coriander, which finished it off perfectly. With some hot buttery naan, it was divine.
