Deviled Prawns- Chinese style Fiery, Delicious Prawns

prawn develled

Serve this quick-and-easy, delicious deviled prawns to your family and friends and they will never forget the taste of it !

Make sure you opt for king prawns for making this dish; then, rub them with some lemon juice and keep aside for a while to get rid of the fishy smell.

If you prefer the taste of veggies to that of prawns, be liberal with them by adding  diced carrots, quartered green beans, spring onions or leeks.  This will make the portion a bit larger and healthier, but the original recipe with chili and bell peppers gives a distinct fiery taste that will stimulate anyone’s taste buds instantly.
