Prawn & New Potato Stew


When People throw stones, convert them in to Milestones”Sachin Tendulkar 


A key part of any Mediterranean diet is obviously seafood.

As National Healthy Eating week draws to a close, id like to share this with you.

This delicious Prawn & New Potato Stew is one of my specialities and one of my all time favourites.

It is absolutely amazing and the flavours of the Prawns, Potatoes, Coriander and Tomato & Basil sauce all together leaves you in dreamland.

Seafood, especially Prawns, are a hugely good source of protein and perfect after a long run or race for recovery because at the same time it is high in Carbs and energy but low in Calories.

It is important however, to recognise that you should still eat it in moderation in comparison with Oats, Pastas, wheaty foods, Calciums, fruit and vegetables etc because Prawns also sometimes have a high cholesterol contents.

Potatoes are high in Carbs, the staple of any healthy diet, but also just as high in Vitamin C as some fruit salad and contain extremely high levels of potassium.
