King Prawns On a Bed of Spinach With Thai Sauce

Yesterday I saw an Instagram post with shrimps… I ended up craving it and bought some prawns today. However, I was craving something with an asiatic twist and so I put my imagination to work a little bit. I embedded the prawns in sesame oil and chia seeds and served them on a bed of spinach and pineapple. The final and secret ingredient was really the Sweet Chilli Thai sauce.


Here’s what you are going to need:

  • a dozen of prawns (I got mine from Iceland)
  • sesame oil (easy to find at Aldi’s)
  • chia seeds (easy to find at Aldi’s)
  • himalayan salt
  • spinach
  • two pineapple slices (canned)


Here’s how I did it:

  1. pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees
  2. in a bowl, put the prawns, add some sesame oil, a little bit of himalayan salt and a sprinkle of chia seeds
  3. mix all the ingredients together and make sure the prawns are well coated
  4. put some kitchen foil in a trail and distribute the prawns evenly
  5. put the prawns to bake and reserve the bowl to the side
  6. use the same bowl (don’t wash it!) and cut some spinach leafs into it
  7. cut the pineapple slides in squares and add it to the bowl as well
  8. mix the spinach and pineapple – the sesame oil and chia seeds left from the prawns should be enough to temper the salad
  9. remove the prawns from the oven when you’re happy with their look
  10. place the prawns on the spinach bed and…
  11. finish the plate by dressing the prawns with some Sweet Chilli Thai Sauce

This is by far one of my favourites! Let me know if you decide to try it. I personally think I’m going to repeat it again tomorrow!
