Clean Eating Chilli Protein Fries and Chilli Lime Prawns

Of all the protein sources, prawns are my favourite! Combined with my secret protein french fries, this refreshing spicy meal is sure to give your metabolism a delicious boost! Prep a batch of the prawns and fries for easy meals throughout the busy week!

Chilli Lime Prawns -serves 4

  • 500g uncooked defrosted prawns peeled
  • 1 garlic clove chopped into small pieces
  • 1 fresh chilli chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salad as desired, I used Kale, mushrooms and tomato

1. In a bowl marinate prawns in lime juice and pepper

2. Cover with towel or cling wrap ands leave in fridge for at least an hour

3. In a pan heat the oil and add in garlic clove and chilli

4. Add in prawns and a little of the lime juice and fry them for around 4 minutes (when they change colour to pink)

5. Serve up with salad and fries

Chilli Fries serves 4

  • 500g firm tofu (or extra firm if you can find!)
  • 1tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1tsp cayenne pepper

1. Drain as much water from tofu as possible for crispy fries. I do this by wrapping tofu block in paper towel and place on a plate. Put another plate on top and place something heavy on top like a can or book! Leave for 30 mins

2. Chop tofu into thin fry like strips

3. Preheat oven to 180 C

4. On a lined baking tray place tofu strips

5. Coat with half the oil, half the paprika abs cayenne

6. Bake for 15 mins

7. Take out tray and flip the chips. Coat with remaining oil, paprika and cayenne

8. Bake for a further 10 minutes

9. Serve up with prawns and salad

Enjoy!
