Thai Sweet & Sour Prawns

This 15-minute dish comes together really quickly and is full of delicate prawns and tangy sauce. I thoroughly recommend using fresh pineapple and avoiding the tinned variety, otherwise your sweetness is going to be off-balance. Serve with steamed rice and you’re good to go!
