Prawns also known as Shrimp. 

Total time: 45 minutes

2 cups Brown Rice Pasta or quinoa pasta (linguine works great with this recipe)

Pesto Sauce:
1 cup fresh Basil
1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 teaspoon of Himalayan Salt
The juice of 1/2 a lemon

1 cup of hemp seeds (you can use almonds or cashews)
1/4 teaspoon himalayan salt
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
the juice of one small lemon
1/2 teaspoon of dill
ADD 1 teaspoon of water if it needs more liquid for a smooth ‘sour cream’ consistency

1 pound prawns/shrimp, peeled
1/2 cup Arugula/rocket (or spinach)
1 tablespoon Coconut Oil


1. Cook the pasta as per directions on the packet. Cook until done. Drain, set aside.

4. Heat a medium fry pan with coconut oil and stir fry the prawns for 3 minutes or until done.
