    This was awesome! Now for those of us in the suburbs w/out fancy super grocery stores (even though I do have Wegmans) just use Really large Shrimp and you won't even notice the lack of roe.And you probably won't find Harissa so use an asian red chili garlic sauce. They do reference sambal olek. Key tip try to make the herb sauce early in the day and I would precook the cauliflower and couscous. Then combine the dish and put in the oven for about 5 minutes to get really hot!!!

    You can substitute wild gulf prawns but they won't be the same. You could also try the recipe with lobster and use some of the lobster roe. The special taste of Spots is unique. They taste more like King Crab and Lobster than shrimp, sweet and delicate. Sylvia

    Does anyone have a substitute for the spot prawns? I doubt I'll find them here on the East Coast.
