Valentines Day is of course a special day, and yes, if we stay in, we will normally have an appetizer and a big favorite are these Garlic Butter Prawns .
Prawns are also not high on our must-haves for two reasons 1) the cost of these are extremely high, especially for our in-landers and 2) prawns are so not good for anyone with high blood cholesterol.
