  1. Clean, peel and de-vein the prawns. Pat dry with kitchen towels. Marinate lightly with salt & pepper. Keep in the fridge for ½ hour.

Peng: This looks delicious! I'm not a huge fan of pumpkins, how do you feel if I just replaced it with another 125 gm of zucchini? Or is there a substitute of another vegetable you recommend?

Amazing recipe! :0)
