New Recipe: Prawns with Noodles

We’ve given prawns a tasty twist in this satisfying salad, with an abundance of nutrient-rich and flavoursome ingredients, plus some chilli for spice! Prawns are a great high protein accompaniment to any dish and this is the perfect spring salad. We promise it tastes just as good as it looks!

  • 1 handful of Tuscan kale, roughly chopped
  • 1 zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 squash, spiralized
  • ¼ bunch parsley, roughly chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat oil in a fry pan and sauté onion, garlic, chilli and bacon for 2-3 minutes or until golden.
  2. Add in carrot noodles and quickly sauté until softened.
  3. Add in the prawns and toss through until they are golden and cooked through.
  4. Add in the kale and zucchini and squash noodles and combine until kale is wilted and noodles softened.
  5. Stir through the parsley, season well and serve amongst two plates.

    For those Vegetrians or people who can’t tolerate bacon Is there a tasty alternative that you feel would compliment this recipe ?

    Hi Lee, this recipe is still delicious without the bacon! However a great alternative would be some crispy tempeh or tofu. Hope that helps!
