Prawns Pepper Fry

Prawns. Wow!

This is what my reaction is almost every time I visit the fish stall. And then end up buying it.

Mom and granny prepares yummy Goan style Prawns curry, Prawns Fry and Prawns Sukka ( click on the link to see the recipe).I experiment with different dishes. One among those is Prawns Pepper Fry. I usually prepare chicken pepper fry. But this time i gave a try with prawns or say " fresh prawns". I am stressing "fresh" just because its very difficult to get fresh seafood in cities as we get in our coastal regions.

This recipe is so simple and the taste is just fantastic.  Sea food lovers, I am sure you will love this. Enjoy.

Now coming back to the recipe, here we go.....
