Spicy Prawns

Oh this is a new firm favourite!! It did look much nicer in real life than what it looks in my picture!! 

This recipe came from a lovely blog http://www.eat-yourself-skinny.com

It tasted delicious and the spice mixture was just right. Will definitely be having it again and might even be able to convert my prawn hater husband into liking them! haha

It's so quick and easy to make and all you do is mix all the ingredients - add it to the prawns and either fry or grill them.  I quickly fried mine in frylight for a couple of mins until they were cooked and they went teeny, but as the author of the blog says, this would be delicious using big king prawns and making skewers with them. 

This recipe is for 2lb of prawns, but I only had a fraction of that, so I just adjusted and halved the amounts.

3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon curry powder (mild)
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all the ingredients together and add to the prawns, mixing until they are all covered.  Stir fry with some frylight for a few minutes until the prawns are cooked.  Squeeze lime juice over the top and serve.
