Food, Fun and Face!

Welcome to my blog! I'm starting this blog to add some spice to some of your kitchens! I follow a primal lifestyle which basically means I eat a whole bunch of vegetables, good meats, some fruit, nuts and seeds and a little dairy. I avoid eating all grains and try not to eat processed food and limit the amount of sugar I throw down my throat. Basically the name of the game is to eat REAL FOOD. Sounds simple right? But sometimes people find it hard to start to eat this way. So this blog is here to help you (and me) throw together some awesome tasty food . So please stay a while and get your creative kitchen juices flowing again!!

Prawn Salad

I'm away from home lots and it can be hard to find good food out on the road. So most of the time, if I know I'm going to be away for the night, I will make food at home and take it with me.

This recipe is a simple prawn salad. Takes about 20mins all up to prepare.

Ingredients:

As many Prawns as you desire
A big handful of Broccoli Florets
Salad Greens
1x small Onion
1x medium Tomato
Juice of 1 lemon
1x cup of chopped Cucumber
1x 100g packet Fressure Foods All Natural Guacamole
2x Knobs of Butter
Salt and Pepper



Put a frying pan on high heat and add a big knob of butter. Chop up the onion and add to pan.

Roughly cut the broccoli into bite size pieces. Once you can start to smell the onion cooking in the pan, add the broccoli. You don't need to cook the shit out of the broccoli. It's nice with a little bit of crunch. After a few minutes of frying off the broccoli add the lemon juice to the pan and stir.

2 minutes later take the broccoli and onion out and put to one side.

In the same pan add another knob of butter and let it melt.

Once the butter looks hot add the raw prawns. They will only take a short time to cook. Wait until they are pink and remove from the pan.

Roughly chop your salad greens and put in a lunch box, (or bowl if you are going to eat now!).

Chop up the tomatoes and cucumber and add to salad greens. Add the broccoli and onion mixture and throw in the prawns. Garnish with chopped spring onion. Season with salt and pepper.

You can add another squeeze of lemon or lime juice at this point if you like.

I took a packet of the Guacamole with me and emptied it on the salad when I was ready to eat it.
