Sailor Vee’s Chili and Lime Prawns – 242 cals

What’s for dinner? So glad you asked!!


Prawns are absolutely one of my favourite foods, and so good in this Summer weather. Low in fat, high and protein and ….wait, I don’t care – prawns are just awesome.

Try them, I know you want to!
Serves One (too good to share!)
242 Calories – 6 grams carbohydrate/7 grams fat/ 39 grams protein

200 grams fresh prawns (shelled)
1tbs fresh Coriander
1tsp dried chili flakes
Juice of 1 lime
1 Lebanese cucumber
½ tsp organic Coconut Oil

In a bowl, combine the lime juice (reserve a little squeeze), half the coriander and the chili flakes. Add the prawns and toss well. Allow to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes – 2 hours.
Using a vegetable peeler, slice the cucumber into ribbons.
Heat the coconut oil in a wok until hot. Toss in the marinated prawns and stir regularly until a;most cooked through. Add the cucumber ribbons and remaining coriander and stir well to cook and combine.
Serve in a giant bowl with the last flourish of lime juice on top.
If you want a bigger meal (and have the calories spare), this is great served on brown rice, with a green salad or with some fresh avocado through it!

  1. Sounds and looks amazing! I will definitely be trying this on hot night when the bf is out of the house (he’s allergic to prawns). Thank you!
