From the California Culinary Academy, this sounds really good. Here's what they say about this dish. A spicy Indonesian recipe, Prawns with Peanut Sauce blends the aromatic flavors of peanuts, coriander, cumin, and cayenne pepper in a rich-tasting sauce. This dish can be prepared ahead if you follow one rule of thumb: Undercook prawns slightly, then freeze in their poaching liquid. When the prawns are reheated, they will not have the rubbery texture of overcooked fish. Since this entree is rich in taste and appearance, plain steamed rice and a light spinach or endive salad make suitable accompaniments.
