  • 600g peeled prawns

  • ½ tablespoon of olive oil

  • Zest from 1 lemon, finely grated

  • 3 garlic cloves, mashed

  • 250g bag of thawed & drained frozen chopped spinach

  • Two 250g microwavable bags of 90-second brown rice

Cooking Steps

  1. Pat dry the prawns and put them in a moderate-sized bowl. Toss them gently with oil, lemon zest, and crushed garlic.

  2. Prepare the spinach as per the packet's instructions. Microwave the rice as mentioned on the packet. Mix cumin and spinach with the rice.
