Marmalade Prawns With Barberry, Chilli & Chive butter

Thinking outside the box when cooking is sometimes necessary to keep things fresh but you can often turn to store cupboard for inspiration. For example, ketchups, vinegars, chutneys and jams can all provide different flavour bases. This sauce is lovely and sticky, and also complements the sourness of the barberries perfectly.
