Prawns and crabs are not often cooked here as the man is allergic to it. So it’s more become a way of pampering me once in a while.

For the dip –

  1. We don't jump into crabs and prawns often. Yet that once a while is appreciated. I shall try out. Have a bundle of fresh prawns in the fridge, suppose to use today but laziness just kept me away. The grilled prawns with honey chili is absolutely tempting.
