Creole Chicken & Prawn

We love Caribbean and Southern american flavours at Mongolian Kitchen so after a couple of recent trips to America and the Carribean we felt inspired to make a start. Creole sauce was something we tasted in various places, it seemed simple enough. A light and concentrated tomato sauce with mixed peppers and a unique selection of spices and garlic. You can also have this spicy or mild. The version we made was mild.

We decided to make this with Chicken and Prawn because they always seem to go together. We just wish the prawns in the UK could be like the ones across the pond (ours are tiny!). Like a lot of these types of sauces, the longer you cook them the more the flavours concentrate and this would make a great casserole dish too.
