Spicy Prawns

Spicy Prawns

With a cauliflower, couscous & sun-dried tomato salad and a herby dressing with a kick

This is such a special dish and I urge you all to try it. One of my favourite creations! All herbs in this are from my garden which is so humbling!

1) Start by getting the marinade for the prawns all ready, butterfly the prawns gently and toss them in the marinade - set aside in the fridge. You don't have to leave them for long to marinade, I left them just for the time I was getting the rest of the components ready and they tasted lush!

2) Now sort out your couscous. In a shallow bowl sprinkle the dried couscous along with a spritz of olive oil and mix around with a fork

3) After that add in your stock, the liquid should sit just above the couscous - about 1.5 cm - cover tightly with cling and set aside

4) The couscous should only take about 5 mins to rehydrate so in the last 2 mins of that get your cauliflower rice pack in the microwave

5) Once the couscous and cauliflower are both done combine with a fork the carefully together along with the chopped up sun-dried tomatoes, chopped mint & parsley

6) In a small dish combine your ingredients for the dressing - set aside along with the couscous salad

7) On a hot griddle pan or a normal frying pan carefully place your prawns and fry on for 2 mins on each side - they really don't need much!

8) Take off the heat and drizzle with some of the dressing, leaving some for extra drizzling!


This is a great date night dinner, it's so quick and really quite impressive to look at!
