Part of todays homegrown harvest-I do love my garden!
So today has been a day of watching sport-the olympics do this to me ever since me and my brother religiously watch as much as possible of the Atlanta game in 1996 -god we loved that theme tune embarrassingly!
But to break the sport thought I better cook myself something good for tea!
So prawns it was (need using up -the story of my life!) so I went for a quick and simple but very tasty meal. (Ok I cheated and used Mexican spiced rice but would make my own in future!)

1 small clove garlic
1 small red chilli
1 cherry tomato
1 inch chunk of cucumber
1/2 bunch of coriander (1/2 small supermarket packet)
salt and pepper
Veg (I used homegrown broccoli and kale!) and Cooked Rice to serve.
Finely chop the garland tomato, then slice the chilli. Slice the cucumber and chop slices into quarters.
Pick the leaves off there coriander.
Season the prawns with salt pepper and a dusting of paprika. Squeeze on 1/2 of the lime juice.
Put a little oil in a pan, heat, then fry the garlic and chilli for a few minutes (medium heat).
Add the prawns (and their marinade).
Stir fry for 5 mins until prawns are heated through.
Stir through the coriander leaves and rest of the lime juice.
Serve with stirred veg, rice and a nice glass of wine!
Perfect summer food.
