      Tasty and enjoyed this one but I would agree not as spicy as I was expecting. I used very hot chili flakes but think draining after boiling removed some of the effect, I also didn't use cocktail sauce but did pour over the butter / lemon / cayenne mix. I used prawns that had been shelled with the tails attached but that would have only further soaked things in. I did enjoy this Evelyn and thanks for sharing, however didn't get the kick I was expecting which may be a good thing for a lot of people!

      This was a nice shrimp recipe, but could have been a little spicier. The heat factor was subtle, and I could only taste it in the butter. Overall good recipe! Made for ZWTIII
