Miller, I know you're up there somewhere, I miss you. these prawns are incredible good!! Just made half a recipe, wish I had had more prawns in, will definately be making them again, Don says at least once a month! Up there bet you can eat anything ya want now eh!!!
This was great. The perfect pull-it-together-with-almost-no-effort entree with maximum flavor. I didn't have time to marinate so I just sauteed the onion and garlic with the prawns and that seemed quite effective. Two minutes for the terrific sauce and voila, dinner is served.
