      Excellent!!!!! I served this with "My Thai Sesame Noodles, My Thai Sesame Noodles". If you dont have rice flour do not fret. I substituted 3/4 cup all purpose flour and 2 tbs. corn starch and it came out perfect. I would watch how much salt you use. I will cut back a little on this, but otherwise a very good recipe. Wouldn't change anything, but dont be afraid if you need to do a substitution.

      My favourite so far in ZWT Asia! Absolutely amazing thanks Julie, just the way we like Asian food - simple but with flavour. I DID use ground Chinese Szechuan peppercorns, as I love the fragrant peppery taste that they impart in food, and they made the prawns sing in this recipe. I served these for a light lunch with Asian Garlic Sauce, My Thai Sesame Noodles and Szechuan Cucumbers. Made as posted and very much enjoyed. Merci FT:-) Made for the Cheese and Whine Gang.
