Chilli Garlic Prawns with Bombay Coleslaw with Apple

The Chilli garlic prawns are from my local fishmongers.

This recipe contains liver-friendly foods- olive oil, lemon juice, raw beetroot, provitamin A in carrot and anthocyanins in red cabbage. It is very filling for weight-loss and it is tasty.

I did not know until this recipe that I could infuse spices into a coleslaw dressing. YUM!

  1. Dry-fry the spices for about 2 minutes at 7 on induction hob – move the frying pan about mid-time to evenly toast the spices. There will be smoke but do not burn the spice. Monitor the smell and colour to avoid burning
  2. Add the other ingredients to a glass jar and shake well. Taste as you go. Remember the taste has to be strong as when it is added to the slaw, its strength will lessen.
