Prawn Scrambled Egg

By Michelle Jr @abeeandtoe

If you’re thinking that scrambled eggs aren’t dinner, you’d be almost right.  This is a great idea for – let’s call it supper.

When you get home late and it’s a little too close to bedtime to have a dinner, but you’re still hungry, this is the perfect dish, light, very quick to cook and not overly unhealthy.  It is also very flexible, you can substitute any of the ingredients (except maybe the eggs) that you have in your kitchen for this.

I used… (for two people)

Prawn Scrambled Eggs Ingredients

  • 1 leek
  • Clove of garlic, minced
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 150g peeled prawns (ready to eat)
  • Tarragon
  • Seasoning 
  • olive oil

Prawn Scrambled Eggs Sliced Leeks

Whilst your frying pan is heating up, you should slice your leek. Then add it to the pan with a splash of olive oil and the garlic.  Cook it on a medium heat for around 5 minutes, or until the leek starts to soften (this will depend on how finely you’ve sliced your leek of course)

While that is cooking put the eggs, milk, tarragon and seasoning in a bowl and give it all a good mix.

Once your leeks are soft, add the prawns to the pan and then the eggs and stir it all gently.

Keep stirring it gently until it looks like scrambled egg – about five minutes.

You can then serve it up into bowls.  While it was cooking I also popped some cheese on toast under the grill. Cheese on toast is the perfect accompaniment to this, although a chunk of fresh baguette will work almost as well.
