This quick, spicy and healthy
prawn sauce is about to uplift your meal prep game as this sauce pairs

Prawns are a great source of

Switching out your usual chicken
for prawns in your meal prep or weekly meals is a great way to cut down
on calories as well as get closer to your health goals.

preparing your meals ahead of time.
