King Prawns in Spicy Red Pepper Sauce

King Prawns in Spicy Red Pepper Sauce ~ Simple Food


Whenever I produce a prawn dish like this I always cook the prawns separately and then add them at the end of the process.

Prawns should be cooked on a medium to high heat for just a few minutes so that they remain succulent, if you put them in a curry at the beginning they will just become tough.

The sauce for this dish is made from roasted red peppers, tomatoes, garlic and chillies and I have used my own Garum Masala with full instructions on how to produce it.

Enjoy
