Zucchini stuffed with prawns

I was first introduced to this dish at a friend’s house and loved it instantly! it makes a great appetiser and tastes great. It is also very simple and easy to prepare which makes it even better.


2 small to medium sized courgettes

Low fat grated pecorino cheese

20 king prawns

1-2 garlic cloves

A handful of chopped parsley

Chilli flakes

A small piece of ginger

2 – 3 tablespoons of virgin olive oil

Himalayan salt

Start by cutting the courgettes into small bite size chunks and boil for 5 minutes. Drain them and place in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes. Chop the garlic and ginger and place in a pan with the olive oil, chilli flakes and parsley.  Saute’ for about a minute on low to medium heat and then add the prawns. Cook till the prawns turn pink. Once ready set to the side and take out the courgettes from the oven. Scoop a little flesh out of each piece and sprinkle some pecorino cheese inside and top with 2 prawns. Serve and enjoy!
