Bang Bang Shrimp Salad – Low Carb quick midweek meal.

Freezer is pretty full at the moment, I went freezer filling yesterday, I really fancy Prawns and found This recipe on Pinterest for Bang Bang Shrimp. I am using Almond flour, not regular flour

For those that don’t know this is Spicy crispy fried (or oven baked) king prawns with a sweet chilli mayonnaise – Quick, Simple Tasty, Midweek Meal – 👍👍👍


I defrosted half a bag of Iceland King Prawns, draining them of any water.


In a bowl, add a good dollop of mayonnaise, a good squidge of sweet chilli sauce and some garlic powder and stir together- this ratio is down to taste, so have a play till it tastes ‘right’.


In a bowl, add 50g of almond flour – I make this in the Thermomix by whizzing almonds at speed 10 for a few seconds. And some chilli powder, salt, pepper.


Dip the prawns in a beaten egg with some hot chilli sauce mixed in


Coat in the Almond mix and pop the prawns into a pan of hot oil (beware of the oil spitting) for a minute or 2 till the prawns brown.


The original recipe says to coat the cooked Prawns in the mayo mix, but I prefer to use it as a dip.


I will have this with a big old salad,


the men with some Aldi straight to wok noodles with stirfried spring onion, peppers, Mushroom and a shake of Soy sauce and honey.


All went down well 😉

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home.
