Fresh Chargrilled Prawns & Calamari Mista
This dish provides 6 Prawns, a handful of Calamari, olive oil, lemon and parsley served with a handful of rocky salad. The seafood on this dish tasted as fresh as it looked and was chargrilled to perfection allowing for a refreshing and mouthwatering experience. Although it was lightly seasoned, both the prawns and squid had a beautiful texture that complemented each other while also being beneficial to the customer.
Nutritionally, this was a well-balanced entrée containing good quality protein from the seafood and necessary fibre from the salad, as well as some micronutrients including vitamin C, zinc etc. Just a little bit of olive oil spray is used in cooking, which is considered as a low fat cooking method. In addition, the drizzle of fresh lemon juice also helps lower the GI of the whole meal, especially if there is any high GI carbohydrate included.
