Honeyed Prawns (Shrimp)-

"This is a really simple dish. It makes a great entree for 6 or a main meal for 4 people. This recipe can easily be made gluten-free - just ensure your ingredients are gluten-free. Most tamari sauce is GF or I use "Fountain" brand soy sauce that is now GF. If you do not require a gluten free sauce you can use regular soy sauce"

  1. Great recipe. I added some pan fried broccoli and dried pepper flakes I had feared it would make a sticky mess in the pan but no problem at all
  2. I halved this recipe and followed the recipe exactly.<br/>So easy to make, and for me who does not eat seafood, it was a little hard to know when the prawns are cooked, but with this recipe DH and DS said "They were cooked perfectly."<br/>Both of them really loved the prawns cooked this way and want thme again.<br/>Served with rice this was a winner here.<br/>Thanks Jubes, this is a real winner here and I will be making this again for sure!
  3. I waas looking for a different starter and came up with your recipe;it is WOW! Will reserve this one for company. Thank you for posting this treasure. Made this for ZWT6. Rita
  4. Really enjoyed these shrimp; the flavor was wonderful! Quick and easy, 2 pluses in my book! I followed the recipe, as directed, but was unsure what to do with the sesame seeds, so just sprinkled them over the shrimp. The smell wafting through the house was amazing! Thanks, **Jubes**, for sharing a simple shrimp dish, that will go in my 'go-to' cookbook! :-) Made for ZWT.
  5. Excellent shrimp recipe! Loved the flavor and the easy prep. Came together very quickly which is a huge plus. Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers during ZWT 4.
