  1. This looks a really lovely recipe. I don’t eat prawns, but you could easily swap these for chicken pieces or salmon fillets, or even a meat substitute like soy as the basic sauce is really tasty.

    Looking forward to making this.

    1. Yes it is a lovely recipe. I’d be happy with any of the combinations you suggest, but my favourite is prawn.

      A low fat food and good for you!

  2. This looks absolutely delicious! But will the ingredients in this lovely meal help reduce the absorption of high cholesterol in my bloodstream?

    A recent physical warned me to augment my diet.

    1. Thanks Tim. I think that is something we must all do, particularly as we age.

      Reducing cholesterol in our blood stream is something we have to continually work on. I believe it’s a lifestyle choice. There is nothing in this recipe that will add to your cholesterol problem so you can give it a go. I’m pleased you like it.

      There are foods that will help lower your cholesterol and is something more of us should consider.
