Grilled Prawn Skewers
A simple and delicious starter
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking time: 30 min
Carbs per serving: 0.3 gram
450grams prawns, shelled
80 grams butter
2 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
1 zip lock bag
Prepare the prawns in advance of cooking. Pat prawns dry with paper towels and set aside.
In a small pot over a low heat melt the butter with olive oil and garlic, cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally ensuring the garlic does not burn. Remove from heat and stir in half the parsley and allow to cool. Place prawns in ziplock bag and pour garlic butter sauce over the top seal and refrigerate for 3-6 hours.
Prepare grill for direct high heat.
Remove prawns from bag and skewer. Scrape remaining solidified butter from bag and place in melting pan. Place melting pan over direct heat and melt butter back into a sauce while the prawns are grilling - the prawns will be done in about 6 minutes, 3 minutes per side until they turn pink.
Serve prawns on skewers and drizzle melted butter over the top and garnish with parsley and wedges of limes or lemons.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Keep dessert simple, fresh and healthy with these super easy chocolate dipped strawberries.
Prepare a tray with baking paper. Break the Atkins bar into even pieces and place into a heat proof bowl (choose one that can sit on top of your saucepan).
Fill a saucepan 1/3 of the way with water; bring the water to boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Place the bowl over the saucepan - ensure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Stir chocolate with a metal spoon until completely melted and smooth.
Holding the top of each strawberry, dip about 2/3 into the melted chocolate, and place onto the baking paper. Repeat for all strawberries. Place strawberries into refrigerator to set. Use any remaining chocolate to decorate your serving platter.
