I know there are many ingredients that include in Sweet Chilli Prawn recipe, but not all are required. You can still prepare this recipe with few sauces like the soya sauce and tomato sauce. They are always in my pantry for delicious stir-fry dishes as these.
This dish is mildly spicy, and in order to find these ingredients, the first place I recommend is your local international food market. The key ingredient for the spice in my recipe is the red-chili paste. It can turn up the heat and can be used for any seafood recipes like fish, prawns, squids etc.
