I had a feeling this wasn't going to be a winner but tried it anyway, mainly due to having all the ingredients to hand. The sauce is just weird. Tangy liquid prawn cocktail. Note to self: 'Listen to the voice in your head shouting 'this is not going to work!'

I made this dish with sweet chilli sauce instead of ketchup to give it a bit of heat and served with noodles instead of rice. An easy and low fat meal.
