Taste test
Tasted good. The rice was nice. The broccoli was a little bland without salt, but I guess I should have made sure some of the sauce got onto it. Prawns were reasonably tasty and the sauce, mixed into the rice, was tasty without being overpowering. I could taste all the separate (main) ingredients – always a good thing.

Use again?
