Todays recipe will serve 2 people, and is a gluten-free, paleo-friendly dish.
For this recipe you will only need a frying pan and 2 boiling pans. Try to stick to fluoride free ceramic, ceramic glass or stainless steel cookware to reduce your exposure to toxins.
You will find this curry has a kick and a crunch to it. As always go for the freshest and highest quality ingredients you can find – watch out for mold!
This dish will take you 35 minutes to prepare and cook, but it is well worth the time. I would recommend drinking fresh, smooth orange juice with this meal to keep your palate tame (and to reduce endotoxin and lower inflammation).
Ready? Let’s get started..
- 250g Raw King Prawns (ideally wild – not farmed)
- 100g White Rice (ideally organic)
- Thumb-size piece of Ginger, peeled and chopped (organic if possible)
- Thumb-size piece of Horseradish, peeled and chopped (organic if possible)
- Broccoli (ideally fresh, local, organic)
- Creamed Coconut or Coconut Milk (organic, no ‘gum’ ingredients)
- Dill Weed
- Fruit Sugar (pure fructose)
- Butter (ideally grassfed, organic – look for the most golden coloured butters)
- Red Palm Oil (ideally organic)
- Start off by peeling the horseradish and ginger. Heat your frying pan to a low heat with the red palm oil and prawns.
- Slice the horshradish and ginger into thin strips and place them into the frying pan.
- Wash and cover the rice with twice the volume of filtered water. Heat the rice to boiling point for 5 minutes, add salt, then simmer for 30 minutes.
- Wash the broccoli, chop and then boil it with salt for 30 minutes to break down the fibre.
- Sprinkle a teaspoon of each herb and spice, and 50g of creamed coconut, into the frying pan to melt.
- Stir the prawns regularly for 30 minutes and the rice on occasion.After 30 minutes drain the broccoli and transfer into frying pan, add 30g of butter and a tablespoon of sugar (I prefer fruit sugar/fructose).
- Plate up the rice first and then add the contents of the frying pan.
Grassfed butter is a rich source of conjugated linoleic acid which is known for it’s anti-cancer and cellular healing effects. It is also a rich source of butyric acid which helps to reduce physiological stress and raise metabolism. Vitamin K (good for heart health) is also found in reasonable quantities in grassfed butter.
Red palm oil is a very rich source of vitamin A and vitamin E, along with dozens of other minerals. However red palm oil should not be consumed often due to the high amounts of polyunsaturated, omega-6 fats (which are pro-inflammatory via their prostaglandin breakdown products and suppress cellular metabolism by opposing the thyroid)
Prawns/shrimp are a rich source of copper, which helps to prevent excess iron buildup if used regularly.
Fructose (or fruit sugar) helps to prevent hypoglycemia (especially in type 1 diabetics) and reduces cortisol (and other stress hormone) levels.
