I love prawns and it helps to live in Norway where they are relatively cheap compared to other European cities – purely my opinion though, no statistics to prove it!
I recently found this healthy risotto recipe where they don’t use Parmesan cheese but Creme Fraiche instead. From what I know Creme Fraiche is actually more fattening but it was delicious – so I’m not complaining.
The dish was quite quick to make and really tasty. I played around with the measurements though as I’m not patient enough to measure each ingredient. I usually go by taste and consistency (and add extra prawns ;)).
Another prawn dish that is quick and mess-free is this Grilled Prawns with Mango salad. I love the grilled garlic prawns you get at Tapas restaurants. I’d eat it everyday if I could. In an attempt to replicate that, I tossed some prawns with garlic and some spices (salt, pepper, lemon juice, ), grilled them in the oven for 10-15 minutes and they were done. The salad was just a toss up of greens and fresh mango slices together with vinaigrette dressing. Since I can’t give up carbs completely, I ate it with some garlic bread slices.
I’m hoping to bake something this weekend – since the boyfriend’s parents are visiting and it would be nice to have them over for tea and some cake since I have to work most days and won’t get to play tour guide I’m contemplating something slightly healthy like this Moroccan Lemon and Orange Cake but I doubt I can find “orange flower” essence here 😉 Maybe I’ll substitute it with some orange juice and rose water. Let’s see 🙂 I’ll tell you if it is a success.
