Ginger Prawns

Ginger Prawns created by Chef Nado

This is from the local Western Australia newspaper. After making this we made some changes - the original recipe called for a 1/4 cup each of mint and coriander (cilantro) leaves. We have also added some cornflour and changed the direction a little. The preparation time allows for peeling prawns.

    This was delicious!! Definately a keeper in my Favorites of 2013. I made as directed only using half the shrimp and left the sauce at the full amount to have enough of it to serve over some jasmine rice. Served this with asian cucumbers. All I can say is that I'm soooo glad I picked this recipe for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game 2013. Thank you for posting.

    I have traveled too Thailand too many times ;) Cilantro is a must in any dish and so I made this recipe by adding cilantro as a garnish and also I added some honey and some lime juice. Was yummy! Thanks for posting it. I will try it again using chicken instead of prawns.
