Sweet and Sour Prawns/Shrimp

35 mins (prep 30, cooking 5)
21 ingredients
2-4 servings
This recipe is based on one from ninmsn.com.au which the DH and I changed to suit our own tastes. The original included water chestnuts which we omitted and we added chillies to give a bit of bite and we thoroughly enjoyed the result. When we made it I used 580 grams of prawns but they were jumbo prawns - 7 all up and the 2 of us gobbled up the lot, using smaller prawns you could serve 3 to 4 people. I have included peeling the prawns in the preperation time.
