Zingy Prawn & Sweet Pepper Mix

Prawn and Peppers MixAs I’d spent the day drinking Cambridge Weight Plan shakes, this tasty and simple prawn recipe was a welcome change. It only took about 10 minutes to prepare and cook, and fits perfectly into the Step 2 dinner allowances. If you give it a try, let me know what you think!

What goes in?

  • 190g cooked prawns
  • 75g reduced fat cottage cheese (less than 2% fat)
  • 60g sweet pointed red pepper
  • 20g spinach, watercress and rocket
  • Pinch of chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Dried basil
  • Splash of white wine vinegar

How do you make it?

  1. Dry fry the pepper in a non stick plan on medium heat
  2. When you start to see black spots on the pepper, add a splash of water and cook until most of the water is gone
  3. Add a splash of white wine vinegar, the chilli, the smoked paprika and cook for one more minute then remove from the heat.
  4. Add the prawns and a shake of dried basil and stir up until everything is coated.
  5. Add a shake of dried basil to the cottage cheese and plate up, alongside a bed of the salad leaves.
  6. Finally, add your prawn and pepper mix on top of the salad and serve.
