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. After a busy 2 weeks (yes! work and lots of baking for my daughter’s school kept me on my toes literally) I gave into deliciously grilled prawns with a sweet n spicy dip- all just for me…

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.
Ohff!! I am drooling here Rekha. Remember having this dip from restaurants, haven't tried it at home yet. But now, will try it with your grilled prawns.
