This is a great summer starter before a BBQ or seafood dinner.Serve with some grilled sourdough bread topped with sundried tomato and chilli butter on the side.

Bake your own croutons in the oven out of leftover sourdough bread.

Can be made a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator. For something a little more fancy, substitute the prawns in this recipe with lobster or marron. Steaming times will need to be adjusted accordingly.
