Don’t ask me why, but for a few weeks I’ve been thinking longingly about sesame prawn toast. It’s lovely, really easy to make but there’s no way I could justify a carby version (oh the fried bread!!!), so here’s a totally lean version for you to try that’s really quick to make!
Ingredients for 1 serving
|294g||raw king prawns|
|46g||spring onion, finely chopped|
|116g||mushrooms, large or portobello|
|149g||mixed salad leaves|
|salt and pepper|
(Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)
- Pre heat your grill to its highest setting a pop your mushrooms onto a baking sheet.
- Sprinkle a little salt on top and grill the mushrooms for a few minutes until they soften and release some of their natural juices.
- Remove these from the grill and set aside.
- Put the spring onion, prawns, egg and a little seasoning into a mini food processor and blend everything to a paste.
- Remove the blade and stir through 3/4 of your sesame seeds.
- Take a mushroom and spoon on some of the prawn mixture and smooth it over the top right to the edges (like you’re spreading icing onto a cupcake).
- Repeat until you’ve used all your mushrooms and prawn mixture and place each onto a small plate.
- Sprinkle the tops with the remaining sesame seeds and refrigerate for around 30 minutes – this is going to help the egg hold everything together.
- Take a frying pan and add your oil.
- When the pan is warm add one or two of your mushrooms, prawn side down.
- You may be tempted to start fiddling around with them, but trust me, leave them for a few minutes as you’re looking to cook the egg, warm up the prawns (you’ll most likely be using cooked prawns) and brown the topping.
- If you start moving them around, the likelihood is they could break apart.
- After a few minutes, take a small pallet knife and carefully take a peak at one of your mushrooms.
- If they look firm and golden brown, they’re done!
- You don’t have to cook the mushroom side as these were already grilled.
- Repeat until all of your sesame prawn no toasts are made and serve them on your salad leaved with your soy dipping sauce.
Eat slowly……they don’t last long. Well mine didn’t!
- For anyone following older BC plans, king prawns have been used instead of chicken.
- For anyone following older BC plans, I have halved the amounts for both eggs and sesame seeds to be able to include both in the recipe and not affect the macros.
- For those on 2018 BC plans, soy sauce is a swap for other side sauces provided you choose one with equivalent macros.
