    diner524's Note:

    A recipe I found while searching for Australian recipes for ZWT. Found this one on the Sydney Fish Market web site. This is what was stated about the prawns/recipe: "Tiny little school prawns, small enough to eat head and all, are in season from about October – March … which is the best time to make this moreish dish. Add more chilli if you feel like a little more heat!" This serves 6 as an entree.
