This recipe comes from the Secret Man's Business Cookbook - which is one of the best "simply explained" cook books I have ever seen (pretty pictures and all!). So far I have bought three, kept one and handed two on - fabulous book!

NB: I use this recipe as a steak topper - using only one cup of cream (same amount of everything else though...especially the prawns!)
