      Wow! The pepper mix really carried through the frying and formed a great crust. The dipping sauce was wonderful as well. Only change I made was I didn't have fresh limes so used a little less bottled lime juice because it always seems to be a fraction stronger.

      These were terrific, crunchy tasty and so easy to do. I used medium tiger prawns for this recipe and followed the recipe to a tee. The dipping sauce was really good too, though my chilli was not small but the heat was just right for us. Will be doing this recipe quite often from now on.
