Sugar free recipe Thai Prawns

thai prawns

Thai prawns – a quick meal that’s both delicious and nutritious. Just add a few simple spices to your prawns, and stir fry them in a matter of minutes.

Prawns are a low-fat source of protein. A serving of prawns also contains calcium, potassium and phosphorus and is a good source of vitamins A and E.  Prawns, like other fish and shellfish, are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.  This Thai prawns recipe contains no added sugar, and by itself it is low in carbohydrate.

Ingredients for  Thai prawns:

  • 180g raw king prawns – shells removed
  • 1 tbsp oil of choice
  • 2 red chillies – finely sliced,
  • 4 spring onions – finely sliced,
  • 2 garlic cloves – peeled and finely sliced,
  • 1 lemon – rind and juice,
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Method:

Heat oil on a high heat, add all of the ingredients and turn down to a medium heat. Stir frequently as everything cooks very quickly.

The prawns are cooked when they are completely pink and there is no grey colour left. Serve immediately with stir fried vegetables, noodles or egg fried rice.

Quick variations: This dish would taste great with 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, finely diced 2cm piece of ginger, 4 finely sliced spring onions, 1 lemon – juiced, 1 teaspoon of fish sauce and 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce. If you need more sauce, just add water.

OR you could turn these Thai prawns into a great curry, just by adding a jar of red thai curry paste and 2 tins of coconut milk.
