Seafood Sauce/Dressing

2 Dec

This was a total MacGyver meal, so there aren’t a lot of measurements, but I’ll do my best.

Salad, with prawns lightly coated in Seafood Sauce.

Slop a bit of oil in the bottom of a pot, squeeze the juice from half a lemon in too, add half a dozen chopped garlic cloves, and turn on to medium heat.  Dump in a 300g bag of prawns (they were the frozen, ready to cook type) and a bit of salt, and put the lid on.

While it is cooking away get the rest of your meal done.  We had this with a simple salad (lettuce, grated carrot, capsicum, cucumber, and there would have been avocado too except I forgot to put it in), but it would go well with pasta or pizza.  I plan on using the leftover sauce on a seafood pizza.

Stir it occasionally to make sure the prawns are cooking right through.  By the time the salad was ready the oil/lemon/prawn juices combo had reduced and thickened a bit. I added about half a Tbs tomato paste (a.k.a. however much is left in the little pot in the fridge), a Tbs cornflour (mixed with a little water), stirred them through, then mixed in enough milk to get the consistency I wanted.  I then added the juice of the other half of the lemon, and salt to taste.

For the salad I scooped the prawns out and placed them on top, then swirled some of the sauce over each portion after it was dished.  This was definitely a hit with everyone who could eat it.  (Alternative dinner was provided for Bottomless Tummy 2. ;-))
