Pan seared Prawns


Cooked this scrumptious dinner recently.  High cholesterol, artery clogging ...... doesn't matter, pamper yourself once in a while and indulge!   After that, just need to do more exercise to burn off the calories!


Buna Shimeji mushrooms.  These mushrooms have a pleasant nutty flavour and slightly crunchy texture.  Also a good source of vitamin B1 and Lysine.  Lysine is an essential amino acid, while B1 helps with circulation, blood formation and metabolism of carbohydrates.  Also helps the nervous system and the brain.






Juicy and yummy with every bite  ................... Enjoy!
