stuff you need
  1. peeled prawns (the more the merrier, we used fresh
  2. frozen peeled green prawns)
  3. 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  4. 2 tbs coconut chilli sauce
  5. 2 tbs raw organic honey
  6. 1 tbs coconut balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  7. fresh lime/lemon juice
  8. 1 tsp paprika
  9. 1 tsp chilli flakes
  10. 2 cloves of garlic chopped

  12. 1 red capsicum chopped into squares
  13. 1 green capsicum chopped into squares
  14. 1/2 a pineapple diced
  15. coconut oil for the pan
now what
  1. First up, marinade! Mix together the aminos, sweet chilli sauce, honey, vinegar, juice, paprika, one clove of garlic and chilli.
  2. Pour the marinade over your prawns in a bowl and mix carefully, making sure all the prawns get to taste the marinade.
  3. Set aside in the fridge.
  4. Meanwhile, on high, heat up your coconut oil and sauté one clove of garlic and onion.
  5. Add both the capsicums and pineapple and stir until heated through.
  6. Make sure your pan is hot enough and then add the prawns (making sure you get all that yummy marinade into the pan too).
  7. The prawns shouldn’t take long, about 3 – 4 mins, then turn them over and cook for a further 3 mins until they are cooked through.

  1. Hi there!

    We use coconut aminos as a substitute for soy sauce – it gives the same flavour minus all that salt! You can read more about coconut aminos here:

    In Canberra you can find a great range of all coconut products from Natural Living at the fyshwick freshfood markets. All health food shops will generally stock a range of coconut products- especially now as it is really starting to gain popularity!

    Always merrymaking,
