King prawn, chick pea and tomato salad

 

DSCN2146

This salad is a pretty decent all rounder in my opinion. It has a wonderful combination of flavours and textures, is high in protein and is really filling. Plus the chick peas and bulgar wheat are both cheap ingredients that bulk the salad up meaning that is can be shared among a larger crowd. Perfect for lazy Saturday lunches or a weeknight dinner with your friends.

To make this salad you will need:

About 10 large uncooked  king prawns (or 1 pack of fresh or 1/2 pack frozen)

200g bulgar wheat

Chicken stock

2 large handfuls cherry tomatoes

1 can chick peas (drained)

Sea salt

Lemon juice

Olive oil

Garlic

1 large handful fresh coriander (cilantro)

1 red chilli

 

Cook the bulgar wheat following the instructions on the pack (but using your chicken stock). Butterfly your prawns for even cooking. Slice your chilli and peel and rush your garlic and fry or grill alongside the prawns. Slice your tomatoes or if they are smaller halve them. Combine all of the above ingredients in a large bowl with your drained can of chick peas. Add your salt, olive oil and lemon juice to taste. Chop our fresh coriander and use this to top your salad.

I took a leftover portion of this to work for m lunch and Miss S looked at it with much interest as she loves seafood in general.

  1. Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic however I
    had to ask. Does building a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog
    owners. Appreciate it!
