Panko Crumbed Prawns

Prep time: 5 minutes

Such an easy and quick starter idea if you are entertaining this festive season!! Nick cooked them for a Christmas catering gig last night and they went down an absolute treat! Note: use a bigger pot if doing 12, nick just used the little pot cause we were having 2 early as a taste test.
