Kitchen Adventures: Grilled Cajun Prawns

Full title: Grilled Cajun Prawns with Sweet Potato Mash and Holy Trinity Veg. What the heck is Holy Trinity Veg? It's a Cajun or Creole term for a specific combination of vegetables - onions, bell peppers and celery. This dish was simply amazing. Flavors. Textures. Ahhhh-mazing. :P

Ingredients: Sweet Potatoes, Cheddar Cheese, Shrimp, Garlic, Cajun Seasoning, Olive Oil, Thyme, Lemon, Green Bell Pepper, Red Bell Pepper, Celery, Green Onions, Red Chili, Frozen Corn, Smoked Paprika
I don't "do" prawns. They have eyes and legs.. and yuck. We did large shrimp instead. The sweet potatoes are cooked and then mixed with some cheddar cheese. The holy trinity is sauteed with some spices and herbs. It was spicy but so good. 594 calories gets you a lot of food... potatoes, veggies and shrimp. Sprinkled with some lemon juice. Extremely good. Highly recommended.
