Tired? Hungry? No time to cook? You only need 15 minutes to prepare this easy paleo stir fry. It’s a great mid-week meal and you can adapt it to use up whatever leftover vegetables you have in the fridge. I love prawns because they are highly nutrient dense and they only take a couple of minutes to cook.

Time saving tip – get pre-peeled prawns. Frozen prawns can easily be used as long as you don’t forget to transfer them from the freezer to the fridge in the morning to thaw out.

  1. Hi, thank you for the recipe. Is there a substitute to the fish sauce as it is not easy to find it in this part of the world? I

  2. We made this awesome curry tonight, while looking after 2 kids – so it took a little longer than 15 minutes, but it was absolutely DELICIOUS!!
    Added some green beans just because… Can’t rate this recipe high enough – so simple and tasty!!
