From Women & Home magazine. The prawns can be pre-cooked and served cold. The dipping sauce can be made up to a week in advance.

Easy & delicious! I added black pepper and a sprinkle of sea salt to the shrimp as it was cooking. I also opted to use cilantro instead of mint as we prefer that flavor. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall 2011 Pick A Chef.
