Seafood Potjie

Seafood Potjie 

This is a really delicious and easy way to cook a seafood potjie. I think many people are intimidated by cooking seafood but I find that there are a few rules that I always follow and it always comes out great. Never over cook the prawns, usually 5 minutes is enough. Either cook calamari VERY quickly or VERY long, in between = elastic band texture.
