Prawn Fajitas


The plan tonight was to go to karate.  My club has just started a new session on Wednesday evenings and I need an excuse to do more exercise (this flab won’t shift itself!).  The only sticking point is that it’s at a different venue to the one I normally go to, and apparently I’m incapable of finding it.  Whoops!  Sit-ups alone at home for me then!

I wanted to make quick dinner once I got home, so here it is – spicy prawn fajitas.  It takes hardly any time to prepare, not much longer to cook and if you’re starving even less time to eat!  This is a photo-free post as by the time we came to eat we were both really hungry!

Much love

Prawn Fajitas

Seasoning in quantities to suit your personal taste

Onion powder
Chilli powder
Chilli flakes
Ground cumin
Ground coriander
Fresh garlic, chopped
Fresh chilli, chopped

Cooked king prawns, defrosted if frozen
Onion, sliced
Pepper, sliced
Fennel, thinly sliced
Chicory roughly chopped
Drained kidney beans, mashed slightly

Warm tortilla wraps, salad and salsa to serve

  1. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan until sizzling.  Add the onion and turn the heat down to medium-low.  Add the pepper and cook until starting to soften.
  2. Add the fennel and kidney beans and stir well.
  3. Stir through the spices and add the chicory.  Add the prawns and cook until just warmed through.
  4. Serve immediately with wraps, salad and salsa.  My salad was simply lettuce, cucumber and tomato with lots of chopped fresh coriander and dressed with a little salt and lemon juice.  Yum!
