Healthy Recipes For Dinner

I'm always on the lookout for new healthy recipes for dinner but that does not mean I want to eat salads and fresh fruit all the time.

I’ve selected 3 healthy recipes which are inexpensive and easy to prepare. Together they make a delicious 3 course meal for up to four people.

Starter: Spicy Prawn Salad
Main course: Lentil Lasagne
Dessert: Apple Pancake


Spicy Prawn Salad

¾ lb frozen prawns – small variety
3oz rice flour or corn flour
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon chilli powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon fenugreek (optional)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 lemon cut into wedges
Rapeseed oil for frying

Method: defrost the prawns and strain off the liquid but keep them moist. In a large bowl combine all the other ingredients except the lemon and oil. Tip the prawns into the spiced flour and shake around until well covered. Remove the coated prawns to a large plate shaking off any excess flour as you do so.

The prawns will only take a short while to cook and need to come straight to the table so have the salad prepared ready.

Green salad: baby spinach, lambs lettuce, fresh parsley sprigs, rocket – dress the salad with a glug of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.

Heat the rapeseed oil in a heavy pan until almost smoking hot (a cube of bread should turn crisp and brown in a few seconds). Put about half the prawns into the oil. Make sure they do not crowd the pan and after a few seconds stir them with a slotted spoon.

In a few seconds they will have turned a crisp golden brown. Remove them to a warm plate lined with absorbent paper and place in a warm oven. Do the same with the next batch of prawns; ensure the oil has not cooled since removing the first batch.

Place all the prawns in a clean warm serving dish and serve immediately with the  lemon wedges and green salad.
