    Pets'R'us's Note:

    Its about time that I share this recipe here with you. I always include this when making a Rijsttafel (an Indonesian dinner consisting of many different dishes) This is originally intended for mussels but I prefer the prawns. The sauce can be made in advance for up to 2 days, keep in the fridge until needed

      this was quick, easy and delicious. i did have to make a few substituions for ingredients. i used the macadamias suggested. i also subbed ginger for the galangal and lime zest for the leaves. i served this over jasmati rice and it was wonderful.

      Great recipe and a really nice change to not have a tomato based dish. Once the paste was processed it really was no time at all to put the meal together. I used macadamias, fish sauce and ground ginger. I did have shrimp paste here but decided on the fish sauce. Thanks for another great recipe Pets.

      I was served this dish by the chef herself as part of an Indonesian Rijsttafel and it was delicious! Had a nice spicy 'afterburn' from the chili paste. Thanks for the dinner Pets! :)
