Perfect Prawns

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by JoyfulCook

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!
