A prawn curry which packs some punch!

This spicy dish is guaranteed to raise temperatures as it’s HOT HOT HOT!

The love family loves oriental flavours and stir fries are my go-to mid-week style of dinners (I just eat with veggies or tofu myself).

My homemade hot chilli sauce is simple to make too and I usually create a big batch and store it in the fridge to use over 2-3 weeks. I do like my food extra spicy, so feel free to adjust the number of chillies to suit your own palette. I omit the sauce for the kids and they like to add soy sauce to this.

    I love prawns and chilli. I’ll definitely be making this for my husband. I so wish my photography was as stunning as yours!

    This looks great and sounds really easy, I’ll definitely try it – any recipe where most of the ingredients just get chucked in a blender works for me

    Yum! This is so my kind of meal. You know I love quick and easy midweek meals that don’t compromise on flavour, and this ticks all those boxes!! Plus I love the healthy twist of serving this on brown rice. Fab meal! Eb x
