As part of the World Marmalade Awards and working with Mackays Jams, we worked some magic into a prawn dip which was handy as I had an urge for some prawn katsu and not having a car, and being too lazy to get the bus along to Silverburn to see who could make me some, I made my own!
A really simple recipe which took about 25 mins to make in total.
