    my boyfreiend who very rarely does much in the kitchen except be an amatuer microwave technician (tries to heat things up!) helped me out making this recipe (as i was preparing it as part of an asian inspired banquet)...he found it easy with a little of my instruction...only drama we had was medium high heat seemed a bit too high for our test out cooking a piece cremated prawn toast tends to not get eaten!  -  26 Nov 2010
