Egg, Prawn & Broccoli Salad

I am on this weird diet, I don’t even know what the hell it is. Basically I like to call it my carnivore diet, cos I’m getting my body to eat my own fat deposit. Sounds fitting, with Halloween around the corner, doesn’t it? Regardless, I eat some yummy food, and I am sharing with you one that I made recently, and I took really low quality pictures of. It’s not neat or anything, but I’m not Nigella Lawson, so cut me some slack, please!
Right so, to the ingredients;
  • Prawns
  • Broccoli
  • Egg(s)
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Butter/Canola
  • Lime
Note:
  1. There is a difference between  a prawn and shrimp, like it says so here
  2. How to de-vein and peel a prawn, you can find a video tutorial here  (ps: I added Curtis Stone in there, just to make things yummier)
Righto, then. To the cooking pan!
  1. Once all the ingredients are ready, that is, you’ve washed and boiled your prawn and its all clean and tidy, get a bowl out, just add some butter (I prefer Canola, purely for the heart and it’s healthy), and leave it there
  2. Boil your egg (or eggs). Some like it hard boiled, but I kinda like it not so hard (boiled), so that when I dice it up, there’s a natural sauce for the salad, and I don’t need to add anything else (apart maybe from a dash of lime juice or butter(of course Canola).
  3. Steam your broccoli. If you don’t want to over steam your broccoli, what you can do is use your microwave. After washing your broccoli, place it in a microwaveable dish, in go the broccoli florets, then a spoon of water, cover it with cellophane, and into the microwave, for 3 minutes on high.
  4. Once you have everything ready, cut the broccoli into bite size pieces, and thinly slice your egg(s), and add everything to the bowl with the prawns.  Add some salt, pepper and  dash of lime for taste, get your fork out and start munching.

A healthy, light meal, for your Happy Tummy A La Maya (that’s me) 🙂 Enjoy!
