Low-carb Thai Prawn Curry with Cherry Tomatoes

Fragrant, spicy, creamy… this prawn curry was made using Thai yellow curry paste and coconut milk. I struggle to find Thai yellow curry paste in the stores here in the UK, so I buy it online. It’s authentic, delicious and affordable. I quickly cooked the prawns before starting the curry (and then added them back in to warm through before serving) because if you simply add the raw prawns directly into the hot curry to cook, you may end up with a bit of an unsightly grey soup and delay the sauce reducing (I learnt this from experience). The sauce is reduced until thick and creamy and then simply poured over konjac pasta. The plump prawns, sweet cherry tomatoes, salty fish sauce, spicy chilies, acidic lime and the fragrant coriander create perfect harmony. I also added a teaspoon of sweetener to finish it off with a little much-needed sweetness. Simply put – you need to eat this!

Low-carb Seafood Bake

This recipe is a fantastic example of how versatile my Keto Creamy Cauliflower Mash is! This is a simple, hearty and comforting fish pie (coming in at 6.2g carbs per serving) and an ideal meal for the chilly evenings here in the UK. I have seen many stores sell ready “fish pie” mixes (usually a mix of chopped white fish, chopped salmon and chopped smoked haddock) which is handy, but I added prawns to my version to make it a wee bit fancier. This dish is just too lovely and I can’t wait for you to try it! Great with greens on the side, if desired.

Salmon & Avocado Salad with Quick-pickled Onions

Keto Salmon Avocado Salad

This winning low-carb salad boosts a combination of flavours and textures that make every mouthful perfect harmony! Small details like toasting the pumpkin seeds beforehand, quick-pickling the thinly-sliced red onions and using roasted sesame oil makes this salad sensational. I used equal amounts of watercress and pea shoots as I find watercress can be a slightly dominating flavour for this salad.

Low-carb Spicy Moroccan Seafood

Keto Moroccan Seafood

This is a fantastically spicy dish which you can almost completely prepare the day before. When ready to eat, you will need only 10-15 minutes in the kitchen to reheat and finish the cooking – giving you plenty more time to spend with your guests. If you happen to have visited Morocco and returned with the mandatory keepsake tagine, now is your time to whip it out and use it to serve the dish. The dish is spicy, so adjust the minced chili to your liking.
