Prawn Guvech | Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly

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 👍

This dish became one of our favourites after we discovered a small mediterranean restaurant not too far away from where we live. As with a lot of our favourite meals, it wasn’t very slimming friendly, so we decided to create our own Prawn Guvech.

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 the calories or Points etc.

Can I freeze this Prawn Guvech?
