  • Suggested you serve by arranging lettuce leaves around edge of plate and spoon prawns over or to serve in the traditional style, place small metal bowl in centre of prawns and fill with warmed brandy and set alight and pick up a prawn with chopsticks (we use fondue forks) and hold over brandy flame to heat and flavour prawns as for barbecue prawns.
