While preparing this dish, one must always remember that if you are cooking with frozen prawns, it is important to make sure that they are completely defrosted. This can be done easily by placing the prawn in a waterproof package or wrapping in plastic wrap and keeping in cold water for about an hour. Once defrosted, these prawns should be used for cooking immediately. So wear your chef coat and get going!
