15 Minute Prawn and Zucchini Stir Fry [Paleo, Gluten-Free, Banting, Low Carb]

So it’s Spring here in South Africa and I have been working on my Spring Edition meals. This is one of them 🙂


350g prawns (defrosted or fresh – de-veined)

350g zucchini spirals

2 tablespoons ghee

1 tablespoon crushed garlic

Half red pepper (sliced)

Half red onion (chopped)

2 tablespoons tomato paste

30ml coconut milk or water



1 tablespoon chilli flakes

0.5 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon thyme


15 Minutes (I kid you not)

Heat a pan over high heat and add ghee. Then add the onion and fry till translucent. Add the garlic, red pepper and ginger – fry for 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and the prawns and fry for a further 3 minutes. Add the chilli flakes, thyme, water/coconut milk and tomato paste. Lower the heat and allow to simmer for 4 minutes. Serve with some sliced lemons.
