It’s my family’s favorite.
When prawn is used as a main course,You may want to try variety of prawn dishes; Butterfly prawns, Hot and Spicy prawns,Stir-fried prawns,Prawn cocktail and Tempura. Previously,I have prepared Prawn Tempura and Prawn cocktail with lettuce and some additional fruits as accompaniment and different dressings. You may add any kind of available fresh fruits in season as long as it is soft. It will add interest, different taste and color combination. Fruits are even cheaper at the peak of their season.
