Altered ingredient amounts. I just served this over rice with a few slices of avo - amazing! haha - 22 Mar 2009


Used different ingredients. This is really good stuff. I made a few changes to suit the taste of my family. To the butter sauce I added a bit of stock (chicken) and a little bit of lemon juice. I let the sauce thicken up a bit and wow it was amazing. Will make this one again. - 08 Oct 2008


Took shortcuts. A now closed restaurant served something very like this. My favourite! I, like they, served it over fettucine. I garnished with spring onion tops and served crusty slices of bread on the side. I cheated by cooking the prawns in the sauce on a hotplate. Yummy perfection and couldn't be easier! - 08 Oct 2008
