King prawns with winter vegetables and Thai sauce


Ciao, welcome back to my blog, I hope you are enjoying the festivities despite the challenging situation.

Today I am sharing with you a low calorie yet delicious recipe in case you need inspirations for tonight's dinner menu.

It is a fusion dish inspired by the exotic flavours of Thai cuisine: king prawns and winter vegetables with a creamy coconut and spices sauce.

It could be a yummy starter or a tasty second course if you adore anything fish like me.

If you still have some uncooked Brussel sprouts left from Xmas, that's the perfect way to use them up instead of the classic roast.

It might look like a weird combo but I guarantee you, they work surprisingly well together and it is definitely one of my best recipes influenced by Asian food.

The best part is that if you can't be bother with using the stove you can actually use the microwave for this.

The procedure couldn't be any easier and quicker that this, so "if you can eat it you can cook it" like my friends "Cime Peperoni" always say (by the way, consider following them on IG if you like traditional Italian food).


Ingredients for 2:

250g king prawns (cleaned and peeled from their skin)

A handful of Brussel sprouts

A bunch of kale leaves

1 clove of garlic

Half vegetable stock (or some vegetable broth)

Half can of coconut milk

Half lemon juice

Half teaspoon of chilli flakes

2 tbs of sriracha sauce

1 tbs of paprika powder

1 teaspoon of turmeric powder

Salt (or soy sauce)


In a pan set on high heat, drizzle some olive oil, add all the ingredients together and stir well to make sure that the powders will evenly dissolve into the coconut milk.


Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes (until the prawns will turn their typical coral shade).

Do not cook it for more than 10 minutes because the vegetable will turn a sad olive green and the prawns will loose their juiciness.


Enjoy warm with a some naan bread if you like and chilled glass of Prosecco and continue celebrate the arrival of New Year, hopefully it will be a better one!
