This recipe serves 1 person and contains 396 calories.
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
150g of peel and cooked king prawns
100g of pre-cooked brown rice (microwaveable pack)
Pinch of dried chilli flakes
1tsp soy sauce
1tsp sesame seeds
Heat the coconut oil over a moderate to high heat in a non-stick frying pan and add the king prawns. Cook for 1 minute then add the pre-cooked brown rice. Cook for a further 2 minutes and stir constantly to prevent the rice from burning.
Add the soy sauce and honey and stir well. Now add the spinach and chilli flakes and cook until the spinach is wilted – stir to ensure the soy and honey sauce is covering the spinach which will help it to wilt.
Plate the food up and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
Note: We purchase Harbour Fresh king prawns and Golden Sun Wholegrain rice from Lidl and this whole meal costs less than £3 per portion. Better than paying through the nose for meal plans any day!
