Chinese inspired food

The best things in life are meant to be shared.

As I have mentioned in my previous Bring and Share posts , our family has many fantastic memories of meals shared and this weeks food, conversations and laughter were just as wonderful . Some of our dishes this week are our own recipes and the links to all the ones that aren’t are included in the recipe headings.

Ginger and Garlic Prawns

    I always find garlic prawns to be a quick and easy meal served with rice . The secret to all good seafood dishes is to try and buy fresh sea food, although I do understand that this is not always a choice. This recipe was easy, quick and got the thumbs up.
