    Missy Wombat's Note:

    From Australian House and Garden. A wine suggestion: a white wine with tropical fruit flavours eg a Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. I've also posted the dipping sauces.Prep and cooking times are guestimates only and probably on the longer side as I am really slow at deveining prawns!

      These were great! Really easy to put together and the sweetness of the coconut works really well with something a little spicy. I served with chili jam.
