The rich flavor of prawns offset against the sweet piquant Veracruz Sauce makes for an unforgettable meal. Only a couple of weeks back, Chef Trevor shared his famous Veracruz sauce with us for the first time. This is a true winner.

  • 1 Clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tsp Soft brown sugar (demarara is best)
