I love these threads too, thanks form replying.

Apricot chicken was what my Australian mum used to cook up when I was a child. This is basically it:

I do not use soy sauce though. But everything else is pretty much how my mum used to do it. Served over rice. Sweet, tangy, good.

Ooh, I need inspiration this week. I was thinking of doing lasagne tonight. Any exciting ideas what to do with cooked shell-on prawns? DS1 has just started eating them so I buy them every week at the moment. Last week we had them in fajitas, the week before with some tapas bits.

GirlFliesHome · 07/07/2019 12:55

I love a prawn risotto. I also like doing prawns in a white sauce, inside of crepes, folded over then a bit of cheese sprinkled on top. My DS1 who is not a big fan of food loves that.

Also- DS loves instant noodles. Cook them up, the toss in prawns and some tenderstem broccoli. Have as a soupy type thing.
