Prawn to be Wild, Delicious & Healthy…..

The food World appears to be going crazy for courgetti right now. For the people that are looking for ways to eat more of their 5 (or is it 10?) a day, reduce their carbs and live a healthier life will be well aware of the craze, and I am loving it!!! Courgetti has even started to pop-up on menus in restaurants, within ready meals at the supermarket and you can actually buy recipe books dedicated to the stuff.

Never would I ever have thought that you could actually get away with replacing pasta with a vegetable and enjoy it, but hey, it works! And that’s coming from one of the Worlds biggest pasta lovers!

This dish as a whole has to be a new favourite of mine; it’s packed full of flavour, easy to cook and super good for you, so what’s not to like.

If you feel a little uneasy about the situation as a whole and don’t believe me then why not start with half and half, so reducing your gluten intake and increasing your vegetable uptake is a great way to start! And I’m not saying give it up for good (as that would make me a ginourmous hypocrite!), but the weekends are for cheating right?!…

Prawn Courgetti with a Red Pepper Sauce

For the Red Pepper Sauce

  • 1 red pepper – deseeded and roughly chopped
  • Splash olive oil
  • ½ yellow pepper – deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 165g cherry tomatoes – halved
  • 2 cloves garlic – left whole
  • 75ml red wine
  • Pinch sugar
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 150ml vegetable stock

For the courgetti

  • 2 courgettes – spiralised
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 pinch sugar

To serve

  • 1 red onion – finely sliced
  • Splash olive oil
  • 200g raw king prawns
  • 1 handful fresh basil
  • Parmesan shavings – to serve

Pre-heat the oven to 180’C

Toss the pepper in the olive oil and roast for 20 minutes

Add the tomatoes and garlic and cook for a further 20 minutes

Squeeze out the garlic from their skins and return to the dish. Stir in the red wine, sugar and tomato puree and cook for a final 10 minutes

Once cooked, blend the mixture together with the stock until smooth, and then push through a fine sieve to make even smoother.

Set-aside until ready to serve.

Spiralise your courgettes and then toss through the lemon juice and sugar and set aside.

Heat a large pan with a splash of oil and fry the onion until soft.

Add the sauce and once bubbling stir in the prawns

Cook through until the prawns have turned lovely and pink and then turn off the heat.

Fold in the courgetti and then plate up, sprinkling over your basil leaves and parmesan and enjoying with salad.

      You can get a gadget called a Spiraliser/Spiralizer. They are pretty cheap to pick up and really easy to use (And is much quicker than trying to do it with a knife). If you google it then you should get a pretty good idea, otherwise I’m happy to recommend.

    Mmm courgetti and prawns sounds like heaven to me. I am also loving the craze for courgetti as courgette was already my favourite vegetable! 🙂

    I am in Canada and I had to look up courgettes to figure out what it was. Zucchini! I love this recipe and I really wish that I could make a batch! Unfortunately, I have ALS and can longer eat food by mouth (except ice cream – woohoo!) but I will definitely pass this recipe on. Thank you for a lovely recipe!

      I’m so sorry to hear that, that must be incredibly hard, but as you said, a least you still have ice cream!! – If you search “Ice Cream” in my search bar you’ll find quite a few recipes, this one is my particular favourite……. http://homemadewithmess.co.uk/recipe/lemon-cheesecake-ice-cream/

        Don’t be sorry, I’ve been living with ALS for over 12 years so I’m one of the lucky ones! Plus, I would never have met my husband had I never been hospitalized. Now I’m writing my blog to share my love of cooking with everyone! And I get to pass recipes that I find, like yours, with my friends and family! Keep up the great work!!

    2. MD, that includes the run option gimmicky play. They have the play makers with FG, KH, KW, MC, VD, RM, DW and MM to score in the RZ. With that list of talented players, GR can’t find a matchup other than CK running the ball in? Can’t do that every week and win. They need these guys getting their touches and building confidence and continuity. GR needs to get better.

      Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Although, over the 10 years we've been together, we grew together so much, while still retaining our independance and oppositeness. I wouldn't have it any other way!
