Asian Chilli Garlic Prawns #quick #dinner

A fast prawn formula stacked with BIG flavors! Singed prawns covered in a zesty, sticky Asian sauce, these Asian Chili Garlic Prawns will make them smack your lips in absolute fulfillment, feeling like you've quite recently feasted at an extravagant present day Thai eatery.

The sauce suggests a flavor like a natively constructed Chili Jam with the exception of it's far simpler to make. 15 minutes, all the way! This prawn formula came to be after I had a marvelous Stir Fried Prawns in Chili Jam at a modern(ish) Thai Restaurant. While I can't recreate pastries at home spontaneously, I normally have a reasonable shot of getting quite close with appetizing dishes.

It turned out darn heavenly. Outrageously scrumptious and really near making this with a custom made Chili Jam, yet only a ton simpler and quicker.
