Made this today. Very tasty and easy and quick to prepare. I did add more peas more prawns and some chilli flakes for a bit of bite. And some fresh coriander that I happened to have and needs using. Very filling too.

Very nice however I must have used a massive lemon as It was too lemony, put off my 5 year old from enjoying it, he did eat it but was squirming in his seat. So lesson learned, next time I'll add not quite so much lemon! I used small prawns from my freezer and didn't have parmesan, a good quick weekday meal.

A bit stingy on the prawn quantity, a few more peas would do no harm either. Otherwise good and simple.

I made this for a quick easy mid-week dinner. Really easy to make, I added some fresh coriander that I had to use up and a few chilli flakes to give it a bit of a kick. My husband loved it. Will be making this again.

I thought that this was a really quick, easy and tasty tea. It's stuff you always have in your fridge and freezer. I would add a little more lemon than it suggest next time, but that's just a personal taste.

Fine for a quick and easy dinner. The egg and lemon together reminded me a bit of lemon tart but I love lemon so didn't mind too much. I added creme fraiche and plenty of black pepper at the end. Next time will probably add chilli flakes.

This is a tasty and simple dish. It's not exactly something I would offer for guests, but it's a good option for those busy evenings when I'm craving for a fast and a healthy supper.

I really liked this! I didn't use frozen prawn, instead I pan-fried fresh prawns (because I had them) in oil and chilli flakes. Lemony, fresh and easy!

I made this last night. It has a bit of an odd flavour but edible.
