PRAWN & CAULIFLOWER SALAD

Serves 6

5g Carbs per serve 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 750g medium raw prawns
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 3 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp grated lemon zest
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

METHOD

  1. Peel & clean your prawns, removing the tails also.
  2. Place the prawns on a cookie sheet and drizzle with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Roast in a 180 degree oven for 8 – 10 minutes or until opaque. Don’t over cook them or they will be rubbery.
  3. Meanwhile, cut all of the florets off of the cauliflower – discarding the tough bottom stalk. Chop the cauliflower into small pieces. Add the cauliflower (and nothing else) to a microwave safe, shallow bowl or pan, and microwave for about 5 minutes. You want it to be softened but not mushy – you might have to do it in two batches to make sure it cooks evenly.
  4. While your prawns and cauliflower are cooling, peel, seed and chop your cucumbers into about 1/2 inch pieces.
  5. When your prawns are cool enough to handle, slice into halves or thirds lengthwise to make it pretty, or just chop them roughly if you want to save time.
  6. Combine your prawns, cauliflower, and cucumber in a medium bowl. Then add your lemon zest and chopped dill. Pour in your olive oil and lemon juice and toss to coat.
  7. Taste and then season with salt and pepper as desired.
