Delicious! I added a bit more veg and a splash of soy sauce. It was simple and hit in our house! It will become a quick go to mid week meal.

Made this one with squid as well as prawns, and just used red pepper, carrot and green beans as they were the veg we had. It was super tasty for something so simple (I doubled the amount of black pepper so it was quite hot but tasted great).
