Also known as garlic prawns, this tasty, quick, simple and healthy recipe can be made mostly from items that you can store in your cupboard or freezer. It is a recipe that I recently discovered whilst doing a low-carb kick and have made it several times since. Be warned I am not a chef nor do I claim to be a good cook, so when I find something this delicious and easy I tend to rave on a bit and add it to my midweek “go-to” recipes.
- 300g of thawed Frozen or fresh green prawn meat (you can generally buy this in the deli or freezer section of your local supermarket)
- 400g tin of diced tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon of tomato paste (optional)
- 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
- 100g Danish Feta
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 small brown onion diced (most types of onion would work)
- 1/2 or 1 teaspoon of chili powder (make it to your taste)
- 1-2 tablespoons of herbs fresh or dried, I use a variety of thyme, corriander, parsley, marjoram, or oregano depending on what is in the garden/cupboard
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Optional – small piece of crusty toast.
Destructions (my version of instructions):
Set aside some herbs (before chopping) and a few chunks of feta for garnish if you want to get fancy.
Heat oil in a medium saucepan, add garlic and onion and heat until onion becomes clear.
Add tin of diced tomatoes, tomato paste, chili and herbs, heat all ingredients until it is bubbling about 5 mins.
Add prawns and feta bring back to boil then lower to a medium heat and stir occasionally until prawns are cooked, about another 5 mins.
Place into individual bowls, garnish with remaining feta and top with herbs.
