Easy Prawn Recipes with Garlic

While Nutribuddy products are 100% vegan, we know that some of our customers are pescatarian and love nothing more than a tasty prawn dish. So, we thought we’d deliver and share this delicious, authentic Spanish-style prawn recipe!

Perfect as part of a tapas dish or as a main served with crusty bread, this is a nutritious, flavoursome meal for all the fish & prawn-lovers out there.

Plus, thanks to the addition of garlic and fennel, this dish packs a superfood punch! Fennel is quite literally packed with vitamin C for an immunity-boost, while garlic is a nutritional powerhouse, bosting anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties amongst a long list of vitamins.
