This year I try to stick to Mediterranean diet principles to keep healthy.
This dish took me 15 minutes to prepare. I reduced the pasta content to 90 gram to not to overload on simple carbohydrates.
I used butter to fry my prawns, tomatoes, olives and garlic and finished it off with extra virgin olive oil infused with herbs to add extra flavour and heart friendly mono saturated fatty acids. I added my garden grown basil on the end to preserve its sensitive aromas.
Seafood is very important part or a healthy diet. Especially growing children benefit from it as it delivers iodine, zinc and omega 3 fatty acids- all that strengthen the brain development and benefits the immune system. I make sure my son eats at last 3 – 4 servings of seafood a week.
Try this simple dish, enjoy it with a glass of red wine and let me know if you liked it ! 🙂
