Pumpkin and Prawns


A completely uncomplicated recipe that packs a punch of flavor and alpha carotene.

Melt butter then add olive oil. Saute garlic. On a low flame cook some prawns. Once they are almost done, remove and keep separately. Do not overcook them.

Into that oil filled with the amazing flavors of garlic and prawns, fry small pieces of a pumpkin on high heat. Keep stirring. When you are able to slice thru the pumpkin without resistance add a lot of chopped coriander. Add the prawns and bury them inside the hot pumpkin and switch off the stove. If there was any portion left uncooked in the prawns, its going to be perfect now. This is why its very important you don’t overcook them in the initial round.

Now about that alpha carotene, its simply one of those things that lets you live longer.
