Background

The divine taste of the butter prawns is not easily forgettable once you have tried it. The sweetness of the prawns blending with the slight tinge of saltiness from the soy sauce and the spiciness of the chillies makes this dish ever so appetizing.

If you are a seafood lover like me, you will definitely love this dish. Every ingredient blends together harmoniously. The toasted desiccated coconut certainly enhances the taste besides adding a fantastic aroma to the dish. Ensure the freshness of the prawns when preparing this dish.
