    should let them defrost but they don't take long, you can even run them under warm water to hurry them up.

    buy prawns with the shell on.

    king prawns + garlic butter + bread & butter + wok:

    chuck the prawns into the wok with loads of garlic butter (buy it from the supermarket) for a few minutes then eat, use the bread to mop up the sauce

    yum yum yum

    A nice way to make a meal of Prawns is to make a batter -- split prawns down the back remove the black line from it then flatten leaving the tail on.

    Dip in batter and fry then serve with one of your favourite dressings.

    Or you can cook some long grain rice beat up egg when rice is cooked and stir it through the rice which if possible is in a wok and your thawed prawns keep it all on the move chop up a spring onion very fine so you have a colourful meal if you do not like the onion stir through some watercress it is really good,

    Happy Eating.

    King Prawns in Sherry


    12 raw king prawns peeled

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Few drops of Tabasco sauce

    2 tablespoon olive oil

    2 tablespoon sherry


    Make a superficial cut down the back of each prawn, then pull out and discard the dark intestinal tract.

    Heat the oil in a frying pan and stir fry the prawns for 2-3 minutes until pink. Flame quickly with the sherry. Tip out the sherry and season with Tabasco sauce, salt and pepper.

    Tip into a dish and serve immediately.

    The most natural and healthy diet for humans is an omnivorous diet, and not a plant based diet, or a meat-based diet per se. The Paleo Diet can be very widely varied and omnivorous for the most part, but the most important thing is that it’s unprocessed, and avoids the worst foods that agriculture brought mankind… refined inflammatory vegetable oils, refined grains (some are worse than others), and sugar!

    As you can see, the benefits of adopting a Paleo way of eating can be incredible! I’ve been eating 95% Paleo for the last 5-6 years and I’ve never felt better. I have dozens of friends that have adopted a more Paleo way of eating too, and have seen all sorts of health problems disappear, including eliminating acne and other skin problems, digestion problems, improving brain clarity, and of course, losing a lot of body fat!

    Its best to buy them frozen and uncooked, let them defrost naturally and then, chop finely some onion and garlic, fry them in butter until soft but still translucent, and then drop the prawns in. cook until they turn opaque, normally 3 - 5 mins, and serve, with a wedge of lemon. Dont overcook them! If you like chillii, and afew flakes of dried chilli flake to the butter/onions/garlic

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

    I would... throw the prawns into a pan of hot oil with garlic and red chillis. Eat as an appetiser with lots of crusty bread and salad!
