We all need dishes that we can lash together when we get home in the evening without having to think twice.

This is a really tasty meal, and it's perfect to reheat for lunch the next day. You can play around with the ingredients as well, subbing in different veggies or you can even swapping the prawns for a bit of meat if you like.

Instructions

Step 1

The ingredients are super simple and can be changed up as needed. Cooked prawns would work just as well as the raw ones.
