Prawn & pak choi sensation, Low FODMAP

 Prawn & pak choi sensation


This was one of those completely experimental dishes as since being on the Low FODMAP diet it has really tested my boundaries on my creativity.  Most of my favourite things that I would put in to dishes I now cannot have, so I really have to scratch my old brain cells to think of something that might work and by pure luck, not skill I might add, this really worked.

 Visual Evidence

Prawn & pak choi sensation


Put 6 coriander stalks and roots, 2 teaspoons of ground turmeric,


For the paste

  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 2 lemongrass stalks
  • 2 bird’s eye chillies
  • 2 tpsns turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 2 tablespoons of groundnut oil
  • thumb sized knob of ginger

Put all in a food processor and reduce to a rough, loose paste. (This will make twice as much as you need.)

Main Ingredients

  • 400ml can of coconut milk
  • head of pak choi cut in to large bite-sized pieces
  • 8-10 large raw prawns
  • 1 x tablespoon of fish sauce
  • 2 x teaspoons of mirin
  • juice of 1 lime
  • coriander leaves
  • mint leaves

Put half the paste in a pan, fry for a couple of minutes, stirring regularly, then add a 400ml can of coconut milk, a head of pak choi, cut into large bite-sized pieces, and 8-10 shelled large, raw prawns. Bring to the boil and simmer for a few minutes, till the prawns turn opaque. Finish with 2 teaspoons of mirin, a tablespoon of fish sauce and the juice of a lime, or to taste. Stir in the leaves from the coriander and top with a few mint leaves.

What’s your favourite dish that you made perhaps by  mistake?

I hope you have a lovely weekend.  Justine xxx
