Prawn (Shrimp) & Egg-Fried Rice with Garlic, Coriander, Chilli & Spring Onions

This is one of the kids favourite mid-week dinners. Incredibly easy to make yet BIG on flavour, your little ones will love it. 

This dish is perfect when you don’t have time to nip the shops, using flavours that most of us already have in our kitchen cupboard/fridge –  garlic, coriander, chilli and spring onions.

These powerful and aromatic ingredients result in a wonderfully flavoursome dish sending your taste buds into overdrive and I create a batch without the chilli for kids and with for the husband!

I like to use large prawns as the children prefer these to small ones.

    This looks great! I’m mostly vegetarian now, but I still eat seafood every now and then. If I can replace the coriander with parsley in this recipe, this would be perfect for me!

    It sounds really delicious! I love egg fried rice and really need to make it again soon, probably with chicken though.

    I LOVE simple, easy, tasty meals like this – perfect for those crazy-busy days and far healthier than a takeaway. In fact, I have something very similar on my blog – it’s my go to meal for when I’m in a hurry but still want to eat well! Eb x
