Spicy Low-Fat Salmon And Prawn Soup

Looking for a lighter dish after all that feasting? This delicious broth is also a great way to use up any leftover seafood – but can you guess how it’s so low in fat? Replace coconut milk with real coconut essence (not imitation) and light evaporated milk.

Ingredients 2 Tbs sunflower oil 2 Tbs laksa paste 375ml light evaporated milk 3-4 tsp coconut essence (we like Queen Natural Coconut Essence) 1/2 cup chicken stock 1 Tbs brown sugar 4 kaffir lime leaves 4 x 125g salmon fillets 400g cooked prawns, peeled, devained with tails intact 2 Tbs lime juice 2 Tbs fish sauce Method 1. Heat 1 Tbs oil in wok or large deep frypan over medium-high heat. Add laksa paste and stir for 20 seconds. Add light evaporated milk, stock, lime leaves and sugar. Simmer for 3 minutes. Add coconut essence and simmer for a further 2 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in non stick frypan over medium-high heat. Season fish. Fry for 1/2 minutes each side until cooked but still pink in the centre. Set aside. 3. Add prawns to pan and heat through for 1 minute. Add juice and sauce to broth and remove from heat. Divide seafood into shallow bowls, pour over broth and garnish with coriander. To make the soup even healthier, add vegetables like baby spinach, snow peas or brocolli florets at the end of Step 1. What are your favourite light dishes to enjoy during the holidays?
