I am very honoured to receive this Award from Rebecca ~ Chow and Chatter. Thank you for considering me for this Award. Please visit Chow and Chatter to check on her wonderful posts, if you haven’t already.
Love your take on this classic. I hope it helps increase the acceptability and love for prawn heads (my husband loves them).

Murasaki: Just to remind you, reduce the garlic a little if you don't the strong smell of garlic.
Prawns are very expensive now because of Christmas. I'm going to wait until they go back to normal price and then make these. 😉
