Prawn Broccoli Cashew Stir Fry

This easy and very simple dish – Prawn Broccoli Cashew Stir Fry takes less than 30 minutes to make. It is gluten-free, low carb and Keto-friendly (just omit the honey and replace cashew to almonds). It can be eaten as is or partnered with steamed white rice.

I was thinking of Tofu with this dish, but my dear husband forgot to buy the mighty tofu!!! So instead of chicken (which was just lying in the freezer), I thought maybe prawns would be a better alternative. I’m so happy, it worked really well! I used frozen shrimps on this recipe, so I suggest you take out the frozen shrimps out of the freezer first and thaw it for a few minutes before cooking them.
