    JoyfulCook's Note:

    A delicately spiced prawn, with just that zing that brings the flavor alive, so easy to prepare. Serve with simple salads so that the prawns are the centre of attraction.

      Lovely recipe! I did have a problem - I thought I had Sambal oelek but no way, all I had was Sambal Setan. Turned out SUPER Good. The prawns I used were Black prawns and they do not color as well as our recular ones . They taste super!

      Easy to follow instructions and they were so quick to prepare. I used my chili garlic sauce and still used both garlic cloves. I cheated and added another tablespoon of butter. This recipe is a keeper! I served it with a tossed salad, Green Feta Dip 271379 and crusty bread.

      Wow were these little babies good. We really enjoyed this quick and easy to make dish JoyfulCook. The prawns were perfectly cooked, spicy, tender and juicy. I loved that this recipe uses ingredients that I always have in the pantry. I did use two tsps of the sambal oelek as we like our prawns spicy. Served over basmati rice and garnished with green onions for a very tasty meal. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that has gone into my keeper box.
