Garlic and Chilli Prawns in Verjuice butter

This dish makes a great main or entrée and you can easily multiply the ingredients as required. Personally I like to make this dish spicy but of course feel free to alter the chilli to your own liking. As with many Asian dishes the combination of the garlic, coriander and chilli works brilliantly together and helps to bring out the true flavour of the prawns.
