An OC class would be great! Let me know if you need help getting the word out. I’ll pack that teaching kitchen, baby! =)]]>
The other change/addition I made was using Sichuan/Szechwan(sp) peppercorns instead of bird chili — the lemony-ness of the peppercorns worked really well with the prawns.
One thing more I learned: those cheap frozen bulk prawns from Vietnam are soaked in saltwater. So the dish was way saltier than it ought to have been. I had to use those. The fresh prawns were $13 a pound and and the frozen bulk were $7… and I don’t have any money these days. Next time I do this recipe, I will instruct my guest to bring the prawns and specify fresh, fat and juicy only !
But all in all, a successful recipe!]]>
