Slightly dissapointed with this, they tasted good but just wasn't enough of a kick to them, too bland and very time consuming cleaning the prawns...

Made as a starter on valentines day, really light and tasty, bread needed a bit of something though!

Tried this recipe as a quick starter, it was loved by all, even my very 'gifted in the kitchen' friend who asked for a copy of the recipe. I'd recommend this.

This recipe sounds delicious, would the quantities stated be enough for 4 people if doing as a starter?

Thanks
