Prawn Stir Fry with Garlic, Chilli & Coriander

Garlic Prawn Stir-fry

Garlic Prawn Stir-fryOn the weekend I was watching Good Chef Bad Chef, one of my favourite cooking shows, when Zoe cooked up Stir-fry Prawn with Garlic Chives. Now I don’t normally cook prawns at home and for the life of me I can’t think why not. I mean, I love those creepy, juicy little, critters! So after watching Good Chef Bad Chef I went down to our local fish market and bought some green prawns. Whilst I’ve based my Garlic Prawn Stir-fry on Zoe’s recipe, I’ve made a few changes to suit my tastes (cue the kale and spirulina pasta!)

If you’re thinking about adding more prawns to your diet, you’ll be happy to know that prawns are an excellent source of Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, (the good fat) and iodine, which is great for thyroid gland function.

I couldn’t find any garlic chives at my local store and I was pretty desperate to eat this for lunch. So it was lucky that I remembered we have garlic chives growing in our new garden. Well, I was 90% sure they were garlic chives and not a noxious weed. After reassuring The Big J that they most definitely, 100%, were garlic chives, I decided to go with it.

And it was delicious!

Later that day, after one too many coffees, I started feeling a bit ill. Although I was 90% sure that this was due to the coffee and cows milk that I had drunk, that little 10% of doubt had me freaking out that I’d poisoned us. Would we be ok? Could food poisoning be considered attempted murder? Was I going to be charged with attempted murder? Was The Big J going to divorce me or ban me from ever cooking again???

Luckily for me, nobody died, I got better and The Big J didn’t even feel the slightest tinge of sickness. In fact, his only criticism was that the servings weren’t big enough.

  1. You need to work quickly with this recipe, so make sure that you have all of your ingredients chopped and ready to go before you start cooking.
    Have a pot of boiling water ready for the noodles, and a wok heating over a high temperature.
  2. Place the noodles in the pot of boiling water and cook according to packet instructions.
  3. Add coconut oil to the heated wok. Add the garlic, chillies, chives and prawns and stir until the chives begin to wilt.
  4. Pour the Tamari and Mirin into the wok before adding the chopped kale.
  5. Add the noodles and sesame oil, then give a good stir and serve. Garnish with fresh coriander.
