Creamy Garlic Prawns

You know what I sometimes miss about this paleo bizzo?? Amazing fresh seafood pasta with loads of garlic & olive oil. YUUUMMMM!! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t miss the bloating, gut ache & general crappy feeling I get from eating gluten, but those few minutes before all that starts are heavenly. The Italians sure did get some things very right. Like gelato & Gucci. I am going to make sorbet with coconut water this Summer. Not sure what flavor but it is going to be delicious. I can taste it already. I love coconut water… & puppies. People who don’t like puppies have something wrong with them…. Like I think it’s a serious character flaw. That would totally be a deal-breaker for me if someone didn’t like puppies. That’s my dating advice for all you singles out there. If they don’t like puppies, move on quick smart. You are welcome. Well that didn’t get too off track at all. Pasta to puppies. Totally normal conversation.

2 1/2 tbs fresh garlic, crushed
1 red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped (optional)
1 shallot, finely diced
1/4 cup chopped basil
1/4 cup chopped continental parsley (optional)
400ml coconut milk
6 zucchini’s noodled (I use my SPIROOLI
500g peeled raw prawns
I also added 2 fresh salmon fillets chopped into cubes but that is completely optional!
Coconut oil for cooking.

In a large frying pan, heat the coconut oil & sauté the shallot & chilli until the shallot has softened, add the garlic & sauté until it starts to brown slightly. Add your coconut cream & reduce to a medium heat & bring to the boil. Once it is simmering add the prawns (and salmon if you are using it) and allow to return to a simmer stirring gently. Reduce to a low heat & cook until the prawns are just cooked through then remove from heat. Put the zucchini noodles in a big bowl (they are still raw but the hot sauce will be enough to cook them slightly), pour the sauce over the top, add the herbs, season with salt & pepper & toss gently to combine. Serve.
