Middle Eastern Prawn Salad – dinner in under 30 minutes

Middle Eastern Prawn Salad

Tonight I managed dinner in under 30 minutes but no, it wasn’t one of Jamie Oliver’s, I am sorry to say. This was super simple for a change. I didn’t feel like I was tying myself in knots trying to beat some kind of record. But I will go back to Jamie Oliver because it is a challenge and his food is truly delicious. The man knows his flavours.

    Wonderfully easy to prepare and I can taste the slight spicyness on my palate now! A lovely change from the Indian/Malayaian/Thai prawn dishes I oft tend to make :) !

      I love Thai prawns but it is nice to experiment a little with other flavours. Easy meals are good but tonight I have another Jamie Oliver one lined up so let’s see how that goes.

        Find Jamie Oliver quire, quite deceiving. There is this nice country boy brought up on pub food – and, somehow, in the simplest of ways he does get it all right, or better than right, with that deprecating smile :) ! Do tell us after, won’t you :) !

          Have a look at my latest blog post. I made it! Exactly 30 minutes but Jamie made a drink as well, which I didn’t. I have another one of his meals to make tonight and I will let everyone know how that goes.
