So I havent started CS yet (going away on a holiday very soon so starting after that) but i thought I would try some of the recipes, Made this with some alterations mainly because of lack of ingredients :P
Only had a small amount of prawns so mixed them in some dried parsley, lime juice (didnt have lemon), garlic, salt, pepper and the chilli flakes. Cooked them in a very small amount of butter and put them in scrambled eggs with some fetta and capsicum (was supposed to be an omelette but we wont go there haha :P) Tasted absolutely amazing! Me and my partner loved it! Can easily see myself making this on a regular basis.

I'm on the rapid start program ngilec8 and am using many of the recipes listed on this website. So hope it's still OK

This sounds lovely. I am just unsure which recipes I can use if I'm on the rapid phase?

I substituted the wine for vegetable stock, and it was so yummy!

I think the same. Do you need the wine? I am trying to find dishes that would suit my daughter, son in law and two young granchildren.

Hi Lynneponting, Thanks for picking up on that, we must have missed out the Parsley ingredient listing. We've added it in now. About a handful or a tablespoon is absolutely fine to use. There's not really any limit on how much fresh herbs you can use (since they're so low in calories), so if you love the taste then feel free to use more for added flavour!

No parsley in ingedients so would about a tablespoon be a good amount to use?
