My DH loves you! I love this recipe, simple and elegant. The flavors are just perfect! What is not to like. I served this with angel hair pasta with basil pesto fresh out of the garden, sliced tomatoes with an olive oil drizzle. I am definitely making this again and soon. A perfect dinner for 2 or for a party of 20. LOVE IT! Made for July2013 AUZ/NZ Swap

Doesn't get any easier, and really delicious!!! Quickly prepared, I served these with Couscous With Seven Vegetables although this would go wonderfully with anything. Thank you Kate, much enjoyed, and made for ZWT 8

We enjoyed this super simple and quick recipe a lot thanks Kate. I used 20 smaller prawns for the two of us and served this alongside rice pilaf which was good as we didn't have any bread. I'd make this very low fat dish again.
