Coconut Noodles & King Prawn Tails

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

So, the other day I made these king prawn tails for the first time. It wasn’t what I expected, but it was really good anyway. 
The thing is I expected them to taste more like shrimps, but they had texture similar to seafood sticks. But on the other sidey, I love seafood stick(all kinds of seafood) so it was all good, more than good to be honest, and very tasty.
I combined them with some coconut milk, noodles, garlic, fresh coriander and a touch of ginger.
It was ready in 10 minutes and gone in 15!

Here’s what you need.
