Recipe: Prawns and zucchini

As noted in an earlier post I purchased Susie Burrell‘s book ‘Loosing the last 5kg‘ which contains a number of great easy and healthy recipes as well as nutrition and fitness tips.

I was looking for an easy healthy recipe to cook for dinner the other night and decided on Susie’s recipe ‘prawns and zucchini.’ The reason I decided on this recipe was that it didn’t have too many ingredients and I already had one of them (fetta).

The end result is very tasty and satisfying!

Susie Burrell's prawns and zucchini

Prawns and zucchini (serves 1)


  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 10 raw prawns, shelled and deveined
  • 4-5 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup tomato pasta sauce (I used Raguletto Bolognese Classic Tomato pasta sauce)
  • 50g low-fat fetta


  1. Place a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the zucchini and saute until just cooked through
  2. Add the prawns and cook, stirring, until they are translucent, for about 2-3 minutes
  3. Stir in the mushrooms and pasta sauce and simmer until heated through, for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Crumble the fetta over and serve
