Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – 1 syn per skewer
Original/SP – 1 syn per skewer
- 15 large prawns (raw)
- 1.5 teaspoons of olive oil (3 syns)
- 1 red chilli (seeds removed, or if you like it really hot, you can leave them in)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- juice and zest of half a lemon
- small handful of parsley
- small handful of coriander
- salt and black pepper
- Olive oil spray
- 3 wooden skewers, soaked in water
If your prawns have the shell on, peel the prawns and set aside.
Add the olive oil, chilli, garlic, paprika, juice and zest of half a lemon, parsley, coriander and a little salt and black pepper to a mini blender
and blitz until finely chopped.
I then added this to a mortar and pestle, just to grind down a bit more until I had a paste.
Add the paste to the prawns and mix to evenly coat.
Place the prawns onto the wooden skewers. Preheat a grill pan over a medium high heat and add some olive oil spray.
Then add the skewers to the pan and cook on both sides for a couple of minutes until prawns are cooked through.
These can also be cooked on a barbecue if you prefer.
Serve with your choice of sides. Great with rice, syn free fries, salad or in a Healthy Extra tortilla or pitta bread etc
