Spicy Prawns

Recipe by JustJanS

A family favourite, we sometimes cook lobster tails or a firm type of fish in the same way. We like this with steamed Asian vegetables and rice.

Wonderful Prawn recipe - I marinated the prawns for 6 hours in the fridge. I did not have any lemon grfass ( it is rarely available in my smaller town) so I used a squeeze of fresh lemon , I know the flavor is very different but it went well in this recipe. The taste was wonderful, subtle spicy but not take your head off spicy. I wok'd the prawns for apprx 3 minutes and they were perfect. These were medium size if larger I would do them for 4 minutes I have a half dozen favorite prawn recipes and this is now one of them Thanks Jan
