Celery Risotto and Protein Coconut Prawns - Quest Nutrition

Here's the Recipe that we made on valentine's day! We made coconut protein prawns served on top of celery and cheese risotto. If you haven't seen the video yet, check out my YouTube channel

  • Cheese Risotto package 
  • 2 celery sticks
  • Use 1/4 cup of water less than what the label says to cook the risotto so that it will be easier to mold
  • Mince celery sticks and add to risotto for the last 2 minutes of cooking
  • Press risotto into a small cylinder-shaped tea cup. Make sure to pack it in tight so it will hold its shape. But don't pack it so tight that you can't get it out. You may have to shake it a bit to get the risotto to come out. Place on plate.

Prawn recipe adapted from Quest Nutrition

Prawn Marinade:
  • 1 pound prawns, cleaned
  • 1 cup coconut-almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 bag Quest Sea Salt protein chips
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
Powder Blend
  • 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cajun seasoning
Egg Wash
  • 2 large eggs
for cooking: coconut oil or any type of oil is needed 

  1. Wash prawns and place in bag with shrimp marinade. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour (I put mine in for 30 minutes)
  2. Place the breading, powder blend and egg wash into three separate bowls. Take individual prawns and place in each bowl in the order listed above. 
  3. Place coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat. When the pan is warm, place prawns into pan. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes. Fry until golden brown or until prawns are fully cooked
  4. Place prawns onto risotto and top with garnish
