This is so delicious, I marinated the prawns/shrimp overnight and all the flavours really soaked into the prawns. I cooked it on a pan and then packed it for work. The flavours were outstanding even preheated in the microwave. For the sauce/spread, I added a little extra lemon juice and cut down on the pine nuts. I enjoyed both the prawns and sauce, the flavours were perfect combination together. Thank you little_wing - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4*
