  1. I tired it. Passing on all the compliments coming my way over to you too. Only thing I did differently was to do the sauting first, added the ingredients, sauted everything and then put in the prawns and cooked. Turned out delicious. :-) Thanks once again

  2. tried it. It tested just like my mother makes :)
