Do you need to add sugar? What’s it for?
You can skip but adding a bit sugar completes the flavors. Trust me!
I was taught to always add sugar to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. In spaghetti, chili, etc.
Can you use this recipe with just prawns?
This was so delicious. Thanks
Can this recipe be made with shrimp and scallops only? If so, how would I adjust the quantities?
Yes you can. Just use more of them.
Have you ever made this spicy? We recently had something very similar but was a bit spicy. Just wondering what you would add to make it a little spicy!
Just add chili flakes.
Can’t wait to make this. It looks so delicious!!!
Why put the tomatoes in a blender? Can’t you use puréed in a can or crushed?
Sure you can if you want to use can. I don’t want to use canned tomatoes.
