Ginger & Chilli King Prawn Pitta.

Any lovers of seafood then take note of this super simple easy to make lunch/snack 🙂

I love prawns, always have for as long as I can remember but unfortunately my partner hates fish so I rarely have fish in the house.

But lately I am buying more fish in our weekly shop and using it for lunches.

My obsession for prawns began again last week when Lidl had Raw King Prawns on special offer so I had prawns nearly every day of the week 🙂 

But this prawn recipe has to be my favourite for simplicity and flavours.

Please continue reading for the super simple recipe 🙂

  • King Prawns (Raw available from Lidl OR Cooked & Peeled available from Aldi)
  • Ginger & Chilli (Fresh or in paste form)
  • Coconut Oil
  • Wholemeal Pitta
  • Chopped Snack Bite Pepper (Available from Aldi)
  • Chopped Spring Onion/Scallion
  • Spinach, Rocket & Watercress Salad

Whether the prawns are raw or cooked fry them in coconut oil on a low heat. If cooking from raw ensure they are fully cooked.

If using fresh ginger & chilli, dice finely and add to frying pan with prawns. If using paste add 2 squirts of both ginger & ginger and add pepper. Stir to ensure prawns and pepper are coated in spice. 

Generally prawns only take about 4-5 minutes to cook or until they turn pink.

Toast pitta bread.

Be careful when cutting open pitta. 

Add spinach, rocket & watercress salad, spring onion and prawn mix 🙂

The juice from the prawn mix is just delicious so no need for any butter or mayonaise.

And voila all done just enjoy 🙂

Regarding the healthiness of this dish. The only thing that I try to be conscious about is the ginger & chilli if using paste. Pastes can be quite high in sugar so I try not to use too much too often. Fresh ginger and chilli is fantastic for you so the more the better!!

But everything else is extremely healthy including the prawns which are a good source of protein, omega 3 fatty acids and significant amounts of vitamins B-12, B-6 and niacin.

Hope this was helpful and thank you for reading 🙂
