Yep, these are excellent! I had mine on an fresh organic bed of lettuces and herbs with a bit of vinaigrette dressing. My husband wanted his on a kaiser roll with lettuce and mayo. We both enjoyed these tremendously. I made the recipe as is, using green pepper and scallions as that's what I had on hand. I sprayed the grill liberally with Pam spray for grills and cook low on my gas grill, watched carefully and turned carefully. SO good! I will definitely be making these again. Thanks Chia for another great shrimp recipe!
Chia these are excellent. Fantastic as a gourmet sandwich. I served on bread with a bit of lettuce and lime juice squeezed onto the patty. These are quite filling so it would be a brilliant way of serving quite a few people with just a few prawns (shrimps).
