    My mum got me some prawns out of the freezer. I was going to have a jacket potatoe with them like she suggested. I just looked in the cupboard and there are no suitable potatoes!

    So what can I do with them for my tea? I've got all the basics and some veg, rice and pasta.

    I don't mind a bit of spice but I only like mild things.

    They're peeled BTW, and quite big and juicy looking :drool:

    my housemate eats prawns and jacket potatoes, i can't be the only one to find it really bizarre! one of the most british foods you can get with a really exotic food like prawns!

    you could have a nice big salad with them warmed and a sweet chilli dressing

    Got any sweet chilli sauce?
    1. Fry prawns for a few seconds.
    2. Add any veggies you want to add.
    3. Add sweet chilli sauce

    Really nice with some rice

    We have lots of potatoes in the cupbaord but they're either tiny or huge. Plus I was hoping to have something more interesting than just a jacket potatoe and prawns for my tea anyway.

    Stir fry them at high heat with some garlic, wild mushrooms and a splash of oyster sauce. Delish.

    I've got a gorgeous recipe for prawn curry (very minimal, not many ingredients but it somehow tastes fantastic), so maybe try something Indian next time.

    My opinion of prawns matched with the emoticon you put on your post.
