 This recipe really is the most simple thing you can possibly whip up. If you’re looking for the best place to buy your seafood, I can’t recommend Iceland Foods enough! They have a huge range of delicious frozen seafood, and you can just pop the prawns straight in the pan whilst frozen and get cracking with this recipe. As you can probably see from my previous recipes, I’m a massive fan of Iceland!
