Helene's Dried Chili Butterfly Prawn

Introduction

uniquely delicious! the dried chili adds heat to the prawns without affecting its flavour and it's not as fiercely cruel on your tongue compared to the hotness of the fresh ones. uniquely delicious! the dried chili adds heat to the prawns without affecting its flavour and it's not as fiercely cruel on your tongue compared to the hotness of the fresh ones.
