Ginger prawn stir fry – paleo

Sometimes its the simply dishes that feed our souls. I am deeply in love with spicy and at the same time refreshing stir fry dishes at the moment. This ginger prawn stir fry is perfect to fuel yourself with healthy carbs, proteins and fats.

Ginger, garlic, turmeric, chili… all those spices are anti-inflammatory and turn the ginger prawn stir fry into a tasty and delicious alternative to take away!

Lemon grass adds a little refreshing kick but if you don’t have access to it don’t worry – you can also add some fresh lime juice when serving, for example. My favorite way to enjoy stir fry is with thai basil which has a spicier flavor and its aroma leans toward anise.

Of course, the best thing is to have this ginger prawn stir fry freshly cooked form scratch but it is also great cause you can easily prep and pre-cook your veggies & protein source ahead and then just throw everything in a pan and fry it. Takes literally 10 minutes and off you go with a delicious and healthy lunch bowl!
