Pumpkin, Prawn and Plantain Caribbean Curry

Pumpkin, Prawn and Plantain Caribbean Curry - Zest Byron BayServes: 4-6
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins

Ingredients

175g Zest Byron Bay Caribbean Colombo
500g chopped pumpkin
500g peeled raw prawns
300g baby spinach leaves
2 plantains (+1 tbs coconut oil to cook)
400ml coconut cream (low fat works fine)
400ml tinned chopped tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste

Method

To a large pot, add the Zest Byron Bay Caribbean Colombo spice blend and cook for a few minutes before adding the coconut cream and tinned tomatoes. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add chopped pumpkin. While this cooks, slice plantains into 3/4cm coins and fry in some coconut oil for a few minutes on each side or until golden. Set aside.

When the pumpkin is almost cooked through, add the prawns. Continue to cook for a few minutes until the prawns have curled into themselves and the pumpkin is cooked through. Turn off the heat and add the spinach, stirring it through until wilted. Season as required.

Serve on a bed of basmati with plantain on the side.
