Lemon prawns with spinach rice
- 600g prawns, peeled
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon grated zest of lemon
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 250g packet frozen chopped spinach, defrosted, drained
- 2 x 250g packets 90-second brown rice
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- ⅓ cup lemon juice
1 Pat prawns dry and place in a medium-sized bowl. Gently toss with oil, zest and garlic.
2 Cook spinach following packet directions. Cook rice in microwave following packet directions. Fold cumin and spinach through rice.
3 Meanwhile, place a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook prawn mixture in two batches for 2-3 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked. Return all prawns to pan. Add lemon juice and heat for 1 minute while stirring to reduce slightly.
