Recipe by Diana Adcock

Prawns and artichokes together is almost to good for words. Feel free to sub scallops for the prawns if you wish. Serve with a salad and hot bread.

This is a really nice recipe. You cannot go wrong with these ingredients. I served it with a salad and french bread. I think next time I will serve it over rice.
