Honeyed Prawns (Shrimp)-

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jubes

This is a really simple dish. It makes a great entree for 6 or a main meal for 4 people. This recipe can easily be made gluten-free - just ensure your ingredients are gluten-free. Most tamari sauce is GF or I use "Fountain" brand soy sauce that is now GF. If you do not require a gluten free sauce you can use regular soy sauce

I halved this recipe and followed the recipe exactly.
So easy to make, and for me who does not eat seafood, it was a little hard to know when the prawns are cooked, but with this recipe DH and DS said "They were cooked perfectly."
Both of them really loved the prawns cooked this way and want thme again.
Served with rice this was a winner here.
Thanks Jubes, this is a real winner here and I will be making this again for sure!
