Prawn Cutlet with a Chinese Twist

This Prawn cutlet is extremely delicious with a Chinese twist in it. A  makeover to our good old cutlet with the addition of some sauces and bell peppers in it! I bet you can’t stop licking your fingers after having this! 😉😊

The flavor of prawns are always amazing! Whatever with prawns is a hit if you love it. You can also try it with chicken or beef if you don’t like prawns. Thank god my hubby eat prawns and not like other seafood. So if you are searching for a new recipe or a makeover for our old food, this one is a great choice. The addition of sauces gives an extra bit of flavors and tang to the cutlet.
