Added some toasted peanuts and cooked unflavoured prawns with chilli garlic and ginger. It works really well, the herbs make it lovely and fresh.

Really yummy. I cooked the prawns myself with 3/4 chilli and the juice of half a lime. I don't like spring onions, so I added some sugar snaps and ate the whole thing lukewarm, which worked really well.
