No more chocolate for a while, we had lots...far too much at Easter!
Let's go back to our usual healthy diet. Today I went out in the fields to pick some wild herbs. We do this every year in spring time. The fields are full of bright yellow dandelion flowers.. so beautiful! My children were rolling in the grass and they picked some flowers for nonna (grandma).
We left with a bag full nettle, wild garlic and arugola. Later on the house was smelling of garlic and herbs: I made a soup with the wild garlic and a green frittata with the nettle. Wild herbs are delicious and most importantly they are free! Which types of herbs can you find where you live?
With the arugola I made a spicy salad with prawns and lime juice. Very easy and refreshing. I added chilly peppers but I removed the seeds otherwise it would have been to spicy for my taste.
This is a good easy recipe which would be perfect as a starter or as a light lunch.
- Prep Time : 15 minutes
- Cook Time : 5 minutes
Squeeze the lime and pour the juice on the prawns, add the chopped chillies, salt and pepper, 1 tbsp of olive oil and let it marinate for 20 minutes.
Heat up a couple of tbsp of olive oil in a pan then cook the prawns with the chopped chilly peppers until they look pink in colour. Do not overcook them, they will only take a few minutes.
Cut the cherry tomatoes in halves
Put your cooked prawns on a serving dish with the arugola and the tomatoes. Drizzle the salad with olive oil and serve.
