Garlic Sautéed Prawns

Prawns are a great alternative to chicken because, like chicken, they pair well with a variety of seasoning combinations. They’re also in-season right now so it’s a great time to grab them from your local fish market. ????

This recipe comes from one of my favourite cookbooks, Gourmet Nutrition and pairs well with either a delicious cauliflower sauté, (stay tuned for that recipe) coconut rice or some stir-fried veggies. It’s also great as a side to grilled steak or salmon if you’re looking for something a little more substantial.

I made this super easy-to-prepare dish for my family the other night and both of my kids had second helpings… a testament to how delicious it is.

If you’re short on time, this is the perfect mid-week recipe for you, as it literally only took me 15 minutes to prep. My only recommendation is to make extra. I didn’t and immediately wished that I had because there were no leftovers… ahh the joys of being a mother of two growing boys.

Hope you enjoy it!
