Prawns are an excellent source of high-quality complete protein and several important vitamins and minerals that support your good health. Prawns are low in calories, contain no carbs and even though they have a high cholesterol content, they are low in saturated fat. They are high in Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids which are helpful in lowering triglyceride levels and have many other health benefits.
Niki’s Spicy Coconut Prawn Stir Fry Recipe
Serves 8-10 Prep 10 mins CookingTime 10 mins
2tbs olive oil
1kg frozen raw green prawns, peeled, deveined,without tails (thawed)
400g cauliflower, cut into florets
200g broccoli, cut into florets
1 large brown onion, finely sliced
2 large cloves of garlic, finely sliced
2 long red chillies, finely sliced
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp yellow mustard seeds
1/4 tsp ground cardamon
1/2 tsp ground cumin
270ml can coconut milk
4tbs mango chutney
Heat oil in a wok on a medium/high heat and add onion, garlic, chillies and spices, mixing well and just till flavors of spices are released and onion softens. Now add the prawns and combine well, continually stirring for about 2 minutes. Next add the cauliflower and broccoli mixing very well, stirring again for another 2 minutes. Last add the mango chutney and coconut milk, mix well and cover for a couple of minutes on a slightly lower heat to finish cooking. The vegetables should be just cooked, not tender.
We buy frozen prawns that are already prepared. Allow more prep time if you can’t find prepared prawns. If you don’t like prawns you can use chicken or pork instead. Remove chilli seeds to make a milder version of this recipe.
