My favorite shrimp recipe.
Feel like eating light on a hot summer day? But it has to be Fast ’n Easy of course, ‘cause who likes spending time in the kitchen with this beautiful weather outside. I know I don’t. So I just found the perfect recipe: King Prawns with chili and garlic, next to veggies roasted in olive oil and smoked paprika powder. It took no more than 20 minutes to make it, which was perfect because I was dying to hit the park.
I simply greased a cooking tray with olive oil, put the veggies in it and sprinkled a bit of sea salt. Then I tossed the shrimps in a hot cast iron pan (greased with olive oil) and after a few minutes of sizzling, they were ready. I mixed the veggies with the shrimp and added a bit of chili ‘cause I am nuts about spicy.
And that was it. My meal was ready in no time and shortly I was on my way to Greenwich park as I couldn’t let this beautiful day go to waste.
How to cook the Spicy Shrimp with Roasted Veggies Recipe
Spicy Shrimp with Roasted Veggies, Garlic and Chili
- 10 10 oz (300g) stir fry veggie mix - broccoli, spring onion, bean pods, baby corn and carrot, mushrooms
- olive oil
- sea salt
- 1 tbs smoked paprika powder

- As soon as the prawns are ready, take them out on a plate and put the thickly chopped mushrooms in the same pan. Let them cook for about 3-4 minutes, until they get golden.
- Mix the roasted veggies with the prawns, then add salt flakes and sliced chili.
