      This was a good recipe. The only changes that we made were adding parmesan for abit of flavor, and we did not use the saffron threads. I agree with the other review regarding the flavor of the peas in the dish. I feel it took away abit from the dish. Thank you for posting

      Nice recipe Poppy. I cooked a single serve using half the quantities of most ingredients but still used four cloves of garlic along with 200g of tiger prawns. While it tasted great it does look fairly plain, I think adding some blanched and diced red capsicum would help in that regard. The only thing you lost a point on was that I thought the quantity of peas took away from the flavor a little, I think half the amount with the capsicum would be better.
