i think you would reduce the sauce(for above mentioned time) and the last couple of minutes add the prawns...

I watched the show and was surprised to hear that he cooked the prawns for 1 1/2 hours, in my experience prawns are cooked for a few minutes - always. Cant imagine anything in that recipe that need 1 1/2 hours of cooking. The recipe as printed here is what I will try.
