When you love two things, what's better than getting both at once? Our prawn sweet potato curry recipe borrows elements from the spicy Jamaican prawn stew and the Thai's coconut milk and prawns curry. The result? A sweet and spicy creamy curry with a delicate seafood taste.
If you would pardon the dad's joke: We caught two curries with a prawn. Ok, let's move on.
So what's great about our recipe? First of all, it's super healthy, as we included only wholesome and nourishing ingredients. A single serving will provide you with 34% of your recommended daily intake (RDI) for proteins, 22% of your RDI for fibres, and 23% of your RDI for carbs. Moreover, it's a quick and easy recipe ready in less than 30 minutes!
The foundation of our curry consists of these three wholesome ingredients:
Coconut milk adds a tropical and exotic taste to any dish. It also provides us with healthy fats and body-energizing electrolytes. Although coconut is rich in saturated fats, these fats are different from those in animal products. Scientific evidence found that coconut milk can have a positive impact on our heart and cholesterol, and it can help us lose weight .
Then we have sweet potatoes, an excellent source of vitamins, minerals and precious gut-friendly fibres. The orange tubers are a low-carb alternative to plain potatoes, making them a better choice in weight-loss diets.
Finally, prawns are impressive crustaceans with very few carbs but loads of healthy omega-3 fats and antioxidants. They are also a rich source of iodine, a mineral that promotes a healthy thyroid.
Prawns are second only to salmon on our wholesomeness scale, as they can raise your cholesterol when consumed in large quantities. But we are still talking about healthy fish that will bring your real benefits when included in a balanced diet. Also, scientific research found that regular consumption of shrimps didn't increase the risk of developing heart problems , suggesting that the benefits from healthy fats in these crustaceans outweigh the negatives from cholesterol.
School session is over, let's get cooking! Remember to serve this curry with a bowl of rice, and you'll have a quick and satisfying pescatarian dish perfect for either lunch or dinner.
