The beauty of this finger - lip licking dish is that it's so simple and takes under 10 minutes to create.And doesn't require much preparation. For this recipe I use fresh pacific wild green prawns, shelled, deveined with the tails left intact. A loaf of fresh crispy rye or farmer's bread is a must to mop up the delicious juice. This divine bounty is to be brought to the table sizzling. Inspired by: http://dishingupnirvana.blogspot.com.au/
