This dish became one of our favourites after we discovered a small mediterranean restaurant not too far away from where we live, but as with a lot of our favourite meals, it isn’t Slimming World friendly, so we decided to create our own Syn Free Prawn Guvech.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Güveçh is the name of a variety of earthenware pots used in Turkish cuisine, and of a number of casserole/stew dishes that are cooked in them.
Meats used can include chicken, pork, lamb or sometimes beef or fish and seafood. You can even omit completely and replaced with vegetables such as aubergine, courgettes, potatoes and carrots.
Some variations also include the addition of melted cheese (mozzarella or cheddar) so it’s up to you if you want to add a couple of syns.
If you do you can use part of your HEA or Syn it, it’s up to you.
Can I freeze this Syn Free Prawn Guvech?
This recipe can be frozen, but please remember to do the following;
– Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough
– Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
– Defrost thoroughly before reheating.
Make sure it’s piping hot before serving!
What do I use instead of olive oil?
As with most traditional mediterranean recipes, olive oil is used fairly liberally.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Olive Oil flavour is ideal to replace the Olive oil in this Syn Free Prawn Guvech recipe.
