Sometimes, vegetarian 'alternatives' for meat or fish dishes can be really disappointing, but I'm really excited about this new product.
They are Fish-Free King Prawns made by Linda McCartney. They are around £2.50 for a 250g bag which is much cheaper than the equivalent in real king prawns. The texture and flavour is spot on...I was really amazed when I tried them!
Prawns are very low in fat anyway, but this WHOLE bag works out to 5pp/approx.150kcal.
Half the bag is 2pp/75kcal which is plenty for a portion.
You cook them from frozen and then they can be used in both hot and cold dishes- paellas, pastas, prawn cocktails etc.
I stir-fried some in Frylight Sunflower oil with loads of garlic, and had them with 'courgetti spaghetti' (julienned courgette strips), for 2pp/approx 90kcal...a delicious and filling meal for such low propoints!
Something Fishy-free must be going on!
