      Very easy, and nice flavours - I only used a little chilli, and used shrimp rather than prawns because my toddler prefers the slightly-less-fishy taste. <br/><br/>The only thing I didn't love was the thickening the sauce with cornflour: it weighed it all down a bit for my mind. I think it would have been a lot fresher and crisper without the cornflour, and might have benefited from some finely sliced celery to keep it fresh and moist instead.

      Great dinner! I used shrimp also and added a basket of cherry tomatoes. Served with pineapple. Thanks for sharing!
