    17 ingredients.

    20 minutes.

    Yields: 4


    For the salad:

    • 4 cups Kale leaves (finely chopped), stems removed
    • 1 cup Cooked quinoa
    • 4 oz Cherry tomatoes
    • 1/2 Large fennel bulb
    • 4 oz Cooked beets (boiled or roasted)
    • 3 cloves Garlic (or to your taste)
    • Pink Himalayan salt, black pepper, and turmeric to your taste
    • 2 tbsp Organic raw coconut oil
    • 1/3 cup Pumpkin seeds

    For the salad dressing:

    • 2 tbsp Organic, unfiltered extra virgin olive oil
    • Juice from 1/2 Lemon
    • 1+ tsp Maple syrup

    For the prawns:

    • 12 King prawns in the shell
    • 4 cloves Garlic (or to your taste)
    • 2 tbsp Organic raw coconut oil
    • 1 tsp Cayenne pepper
    • 2 tsp Paprika


    • Cook the quinoa first to make 1 cooked cup. Add salt, pepper and other spices of your choice, fluff with a fork and leave it to rest. 
    • Sauté the garlic, kale, cherry tomatoes and fennel in coconut oil for 10 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and turmeric.
    • Add the cooked beets and pumpkin seeds right at the end and sauté for another 1-2 minutes or more.


    • Halfway through sautéing the kale and main ingredients, start cooking the prawns. In a mixing bowl, add the prawns, garlic, coconut oil, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika and mix well. 
    • Add the mix to a pan with a bit of coconut oil and sauté for about 3 minutes on one side. Turn each of the prawns and cook on the other side for another 3 minutes (or more if you like your seafood cooked longer)

    Salad dressing:

    • In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, a bit of the lemon juice and maple syrup. 

    In a large bowl, gently toss the mixed sautéed veggies, quinoa, and salad dressing until well-combined, squeezed lemon to your taste and enjoy. Add the prawns to your plate and enjoy it!
