      Overall a good dish, although the lime juice dominated the flavor and may have been too much. An addition of fish sauce helped to balance that out somewhat. I substituted shrimp for the prawns since I didn't have those. Also, I think it is best to shell the prawns/shrimp completely, as the tails were a little clumsy. The peanuts at the end of the dish were a nice touch! Thanks!

      I liked this recipe but I made a slight change I left out the nuts as I did not have any in the cupboard and I added a big bunch of chopped fresh coriander. To me fish sauce chilli lime and coriander just go together.
