Inspired by local Essex boy, Jamie Oliver. He has some good ideas, particularly if you like rustic food and can’t be bothered with fussing over presentation. Rustic food needs to be phographed well but as always, I can’t be bothered. If you try this recipe out, do send in some pictures inshaaAllaah.
Ground almonds/almond flour
Crushed red chillies
Roasted garlic and herb mix seasoning
Chopped flat parsley (optional)
Pinch of cayenne (optional)
Pinch of Paprika
In a small bowl mix all the ingredients together but NOT the prawns and egg. In another small bowl, lightly whisk the egg. Dip the prawns into the egg and then place them into the ground almond mix. Remember to use one egg for adding the prawns to the eggs and then putting the eggy prawns into the ground almond mix. Then use the other hand to cover the eggy prawns with the dry mix. Use separate hands to avoid eggy-almond hands.
Place them on a non-stick tray and very lightly spray this with oil. Pop the prawns in the oven for approximately 12-15 minutes mak on gas mark 4 and you should turn them half way through to give them a nice even ‘tan’.
Serve with veg and a nice wedge of lemon. Squeezing fresh lemon juice on top of these prawns is just delicious!

Dished up ready to eat! Remember to add loads of lemon – yum!
I love this for it’s simplicity and the goodness you can get from this light meal or breakfast option.
The idea is simple: I love spring rolls and this is healthy alternative.
1 or 2 eggs
sliced mixed vegetables/left over stir fry/bean sprouts etc
Salt & Pepper
Depending on the size of the pan you fry your eggs in, you will need one or two eggs. the frying pan I used was small so one egg was a enough. Whisk the egg and fry like a pancake. Lightly fry your vegetables with some S&P or use some left over stir fry as the filling. Place a couple of tablespoons worth into the centre of the egg pancake and then fold the right and left sides over and roll away from you into a sausage-ish shape. Cut in half and serve!
