    Spicy Prawns with Mango & Avocado

    Primal Fuel


    Some things are just born to go together ...

    Make up a scattered salad from wedges of mango and avocado, dressed up a little with some very thinly sliced cucumber.

    Take a good bunch of prawns, chopped coriander, chillies, garlic and ginger, some lime juice and sauté away in a skillet.

    Pour over the scattered salad and garnish with horse ear spring onions and a few wedges of lime around the plate.

    Simple ...

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

    actually, a few questions if anyone can answer

    I have never cooked prawns before. I bought fresh ones, rather than the imported frozen ones. They were orange, I don't know if that means they are already cooked? I peeled them, marinaded them in the coconut oil and fresh chopped spices and them cooked them on high for a few minutes only. Is that right? I think maybe higher heat next time but less time to get a caramel look.

    Also, how many? I bought 700g but who knows what that is when you peel the shells off. For some reason I have no idea what 'normal' is with seafood! I am eating half and saved half. Does this sound about right?

    Grateful for any input, I am trying to be adventurous rather than get sick of my staple primal meals, cheers.

    A dozen is fine for this meal. More for smaller, less for really large ones.

    Yes, just a couple of minutes to warm through is fine. Grey ones are uncooked - they colour up with some heat. Coloured are pre-cooked, yes, often at sea in huge boilers on the boat.

    Also, if you do buy frozen shellfish, like prawns, shrimp, scallops, mussels and so on, you can defrost them quite quickly by just letting them sit under running cold water for a few minutes.
