How to make Hoisin Butter Prawns.

Hoisin sauce is a thick, dark, fragrant and flavorful sauce that is commonly used as a dipping sauce, a glaze for meats and added to stir fries.
It balances both sweet, tangy and salty flavours and contributes an intense element of deliciousness to whatever food it’s added to.

Only a few ingredients are needed for this meal and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes.
This is a truly, a delectable, keto diet and gluten free dish that will keep you wanting for more.
