Prawns in a Spicy Coconut Sauce

A prawn recipe that is in a spicy coconut sauce.   A very easy healthy recipe to make and you could always used frozen instead of fresh prawns too.

This prawn dish is similar to a Thai curry with the coconut sauce. The sauce could be used for a chicken dish too, or perhaps a steaming bowl of veggies!  Easy to make too, just blitz in a processor and voila!  And full of coconut…yummy!   I used a packet of fresh peeled prawns for speed.  Back in Dubai it would have been a few of their large prawns the size of your fist from the supermarket!
