My husband once ate 2 kg of prawns all by himself. True story. He really loves the stuff. It makes him very, very happy. So whenever I want to treat him, prawns is the way to go.
Although it is the season of salads, braaivleis and ice-cream, a good old green curry broth is great, especially on rainy days. You can substitute the prawns with other seafood like calamari or shrimp, and I bet it will be fabulous with mixed seafood.
