Sunday nights I like a no carb meal, so a pile of prawns is a great meal for my family.


Recipe Ingredients for two

400g shelled and deveined prawns (can buy from Woolies so

nice and easy to cook – no prep required)

2 garlic cloves finely chopped

Pinch of salt salt

1 green chilli, finely diced (optional)

2 tbsp olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

250g (1 punnet) baby marrows, thinly sliced

2 tsp lower-sodium soya sauce

1 bunch spring onions, trimmed and thinly sliced

15g parley finally chopped

Recipe Directions

Heat oil in a frying pan on medium-high until hot.
Add the prawns to the pan; add ginger, garlic and chilli, including seasoning.
Cook for 2 minutes or until almost opaque throughout, stirring occasionally.


Now add spring onions and parsley. Cook for 1 minute or until the prawns are opaque throughout.Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a medium-sized bowl.To the same pan, add the baby marrows; cooking for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the soya sauce, then add 2 tablespoons water (if pan is dry).Cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until the baby marrows are tender, stirring and scraping up any browned bits.Add back the prawns and toss together to serve.

You can stir fry in a cup of cooked Brown basmati rice per person when adding the prawns back in to heat if you are looking for a large helping.My daughter is a rice fan, so I have to do that for her!

Why I love it:

Sunday nights must be easy food with limited work…bout I still want to have a wow factor to celebrate the coming week!
