Spicy Cajun Prawns in a creamy alfredo sauce. This one pot wonder is so easy to whip up. Here's the recipe
A delicious one pot wonder.
350g dry pasta such as fettuccine
400g large shrimp uncooked, shells removed
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 can @rhodesquality chopped tomatoes
3/4 cup heavy cream
50g Parmesan cheese grated
1/4 tsp salt or to taste
1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
chopped coriander for garnish
Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
While the pasta is cooking, season the shrimp with the cajun seasoning. In a large skillet heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the shrimp and cook on both sides until pink, it shouldn't take more than a couple minutes. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.
Add the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil and the butter to the skillet and heat until butter melts over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, then cook for about 3 minutes until the onion becomes soft and translucent.
While the onion is cooking pour the tomatoes in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Add the tomatoes to the skillet, bring to a boil then turn down the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the heavy cream and Parmesan cheese to the skillet, and cook for another 5 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
Add the cooked pasta and shrimp to the skillet and toss everything well together.
Garnish with fresh coriander and more Parmesan cheese if preferred, and serve immediately.

Talk about authentic Durban Indian food. If you've never heard of a bunny chow before it's cool, I got you. It's simple really, you'll need a loaf of unsliced white bread, cut into quarters, hollowed out and filled to the brim with a bomb curry 😮😮😮. You have to eat it with your hands, and yes you will go back for more!
Here's a recipe for that bomb curry I mentioned earlier.
You re gonna need:
1kg skinned chicken pieces
Half an onion- chopped
2 red chilli
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tsp ginger and garlic paste
Half a teaspoon turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
2 tsp chilli powder
1 tablespoon masala
1/2 a can Rhodes chopped tomatoes
1 sachet Rhodes tomato paste
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
Right then, let's get to it!
You re going to want to skin and rinse your chicken before you start.
Heat up 4 tablespoons of oil (I use coconut oil), once the oil is hot add in your chopped onion and cumin seeds. Let the onions brown and seeds pop.
Then add in the cinnamon stick, bay leaf and curry leaves. Allow to fry for a minute and add your ginger and garlic paste, wait 30 seconds and add in the rest of your spices and give it a good stir. Leave for 2 minutes before adding your meat and salt. Stir pot until the spices cover the chicken pieces. Cover the pot and let the chicken cook for 5 minutes. Add in chopped tomatoes and puree and cover pot for another 5 minutes. Add 1 cup of water and cover pot. You're basically done.
Now just give this glorious curry another 45 minutes and you'll have a delicious meal at hand. Serve with rice or if you're banting like me a green crisp salad would do just fine.
Give me a shout if you're stuck or if you've tried it and love it ❤
We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
