These prawns are really tasty and not your average satay sauce. It has a slight Malaysian influence and taste delicious. I have used many ingredients to give this dish great flavours and a slight lift to the sauce.

3oog Frozen Cooked Prawns- Soaked for 10 minutes, changing the water in-between and drained

2 Shallots- Finely Chopped

Take all the ingredients for the spice mix and blend into a paste. Leave aside. Take a pan, add the oil and the spice paste and cook until fragrant.

Add the peanuts and stir until the nuts have cooked a little. Add the other entire ingredients one by one, stirring regularly. Simmer the sauce until smooth. When you are ready to serve add the prawns and warm the sauce and prawn through.
