It comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me, that my passion is food, the big astonishment however, if God came down right now and said, ‘ok Jax, choose a passion for the rest of your life’, I would drop food like a hot rock and pick music. Vinyl, CD’s and of course back…

Add oil and butter to a pan, when bubbling, sprinkle in the onions and sauté gently until, soft, fragrant and golden in colour.
Sprinkle in the spice mix and if using, the chilli flakes, toss through the onion mixture for a further 2 minutes.
Increase the heat then add the prawns. When totally covered in the spicy mixture, pour in the coconut milk and fish stock. Stir, bring to a boil, then reduce for 2 minutes.
Add the spinach and peas, gently toss through the spicy sauce and a cook until the spinach has wilted and the peas are nice and soft. Squeeze in the juice of the lemon, taste and season.
Serve : Garnished with a handful of chopped fresh coriander, with warm nan bread or fluffy white rice or just in a bowl, like soup.
Jax Says : Swap out prawns for any protein or soy protein of your choice. For a quick and consistent cook ensure all meat is cut to bite site (dic (and no bones).
