YOU WILL NEED
* 3 courgettes, spiralised
* 150g prawns
* 8-10 sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
* 3 tbsp tomato paste * 2 tbsp olive oil
* juice of – a lemon
* small handful of fresh basil
* 3-4 cloves garlic
* a handful of rocket
1 Add the sun-dried tomatoes, tomato paste, olive oil, lemon juice, basil and garlic to your food processor. Blitz on high until you have a delicious paste. You’ll have to stop and start and scrape down the sides a few times. Heat some coconut oil in a large pan. Pour in the sun dried tomato mixture and let it get hot.
2 Add in the prawns and toss them around to coat them in the sauce. If they’re uncooked, cook them until pink and plump. If they’re pre-cooked, then just cook them to heat through.
3 Add in the spiralised courgette and toss it around in the sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes until it starts to soften. Turn off the heat and fold in the rocket so that it starts to wilt. Serve immediately.
