I wanted to create a quick meal and had some frozen Australian King Prawns in the freezer.  This took me about 10 minutes to make and was so amazing!

You could easily double this recipe if you needed to serve more than two. Just remember to extend your cooking time by a few mins to ensure the prawns are fully cooked.
