    Used different ingredients. I used a small fresh red chilli, without the seeds, instead of the dried chilli  -  21 Jan 2009


    For me this recipe had a really nice kick behind it but the citrus flavour was too overpowering for me, if you were to make it I would avoid basting the prawns throughout cooking.  -  15 Feb 2011


    This is a wonderful recipe and so easy to make. I liked the orange, as I wouldn't have thought to add that myself. The chilli was just right. I'll make this for parties in the future, definately  -  28 Jan 2009
