Dairy free, Low carbohydrate, Low sugar, Wheat Free

Many people worry about the cholesterol content of prawns which is high compared to other fish, but with a diet high in cholesterol lowering wholegrain carbohydrates, fibre and monounsaturated fats there's no need to deny yourself a serve of prawns every now and again. Served over a bed of silverbeet this dish is a good source of protein and folate. It tastes great, looks great and takes minutes to prepare.

½ bunch silverbeet
160 grams green prawns, shelled and deveined
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp rice syrup
½ tsp hot mustard
1 tbsp olive oil

Using your fingers tear the silverbeet from the stalks and into small pieces. In a small cup mix the mustard powder into a paste with a little of the stock and the rice syrup. Once combined add the remaining stock and mix thoroughly. Peel the garlic and cut it into fine slivers.

Heat the oil in a wok and add the garlic and prawns. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes until the prawns turn opaque. Remove from the wok and set aside. Add the silverbeet cook for 3 minutes mixing the stock mixture through as it cooks. Remove from the heat and serve with the garlic prawns on top.

Note: for extra pungency and flavour the olive oil can be substituted with pungent mustard oil when cooking the prawns.
