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...

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.

Lovely light snack. Made this as a starter for a 3 course meal. Also made a lemon vingarette to pour over the finished dish.
