Margies Stirfry Prawns and scallops with moroccan marinara flavours


2 people made this

The prawns and scallops are marinated in a tasty garlic harissa tomato based marinade The harissa adds a depth of spice and flavour , not just heat, as does the sundried tomato, cashew, parmesan paste, with the baked garlic adding a soft garlicy flavour. The lemon juice gives it a lift. Delicious! Eat on its own in lettuce cups ot mixed into spaghetti.
