This seafood dish makes a great mid-week keto dinner as it comes together in under 15 minutes.
I love the flavour combination here, but you could play around depending on what you have on hand. Parsley or coriander would also work in place of the basil, and cumin is lovely in place of the paprika.
These prawns are delicious served on top of salad greens or with any grilled vegetables. You could even serve it with our Greek Briam or some Veggie Salad Bowl.
Can I Use Frozen Prawns/Shrimp?
Yes, you can use fresh or frozen prawns. If frozen, place the prawns in a colander place over a pot. Run cold water over them. Leave the prawns in the water to defrost for about 5 minutes. Drain and toss the prawns before cooking.
