Garlic Prawns with Spinach & Cucumber

We love the simplicity of this recipe and the tasty results. Perfect when you want something light and quick. The cooked cucumber is different and a good substitute for Cho-Cho too.


  • 250 g shelled large prawns
  • 2 chopped spring onions
  • ½ diced yellow pepper
  • ½ diced red pepper
  • Handful of fresh spinach
  • ½  large cucumber, julienne
  • ½ tsp stock powder
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Small handful of chopped coriander
  • 1 ½ dsp Tropical Garlic Sauce
  • 100ml coconut milk if you want a creamy sauce


Wash and prepare all the veg. Put a splash of olive oil into a hot frying pan or wok, add the chopped spring onions, yellow and red peppers, cucumber and stock powder. Mix well.
Gently fry everything off until tenderised and with a little colour for approximately five minutes then add the  garlic sauce and the prawns.  Mix well and simmer for another 3 – 5 minutes
Chop and add the fresh coriander and mix in so you can either serve it like this or add a small amount of coconut milk to make a creamy version
Serve with Rice ‘n Peas
