Prawns Stuffed Yellow Bell Peppers

Published on June 7, 2013 | Fish

Our supermarket had beautiful red, orange and yellow bell peppers and I could not resist to purchase them.
Ages ago, and I mean ages ago, I prepared this simple yet delightful stuffed bell peppers with shrimps. You may wonder how I do remember that, well, simple… I have kept a log of all the new recipes that I have made since the late ‘80s.. Scary right???

Not having shrimps on hand I used prawns that I just purchased from Pete at  Personal Gourmet Foods. to replicate the recipe that I made then.

An easy to assemble recipe, perfect for lunch or dinner, a crisp green salad is all you may need as a side dish if you are not too hungry.
Bon Appetit!!
