Sesame Shrimp Hearts With Passion Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by jenne

DARLING recipe received in an email from This is SO delicious and super fast to throw together. You totally don't have to make them into hearts, but they do make a great meal for your anniversary or for Valentines Day :) I have changed the recipe a bit, as you don't need near the butter they called for nor do you need near amount of sauce for the shrimp. I also used sugar free jelly with no problems!

I served this as a starter for my dinner party last night. Everyone really enjoyed it. I will make this again with these changes, because I wanted more prawn i will use whole precooked prawns with fresh lemon juice on them and I will add some ginger into the sauce. Thanks
