PRAWN-TASTIC! I made this last night (14.11.17) - it was delicious! However I did think the portion size was more like 1.5 - 2.0 servings! Needless to say, after training it was a delight!! And I was eating within 15 mins of starting to chop!!

Thank you. I don't why but I couldn't see the red pepper either. Nice quick recipe. Lots of heat(added Greek Yoghurt for my Mam who can't have too much spice). Get the rice going just after the marinade. Anyone any ideas on what to do with the almost full tin of coconut milk I have left! :(
