This One-Pan Prawn Fajitas recipe is a great choice for a busy mum, executive or young person who is looking to boost their vitamin C (capsicum) and iodine (prawns) intake. With all of the COVID-19 chaos, immune function and overall body function has never been as important, and due to panic-buying and general hysteria, is becoming harder and harder to consider whilst in the supermarket. Our dietitians have modified an awesome recipe from No. 2 Pencil to make it a great, easy “throw in and go” one-pan spectacular!
It is extremely easy to make, requires minimal cleanup and most ingredients are available in frozen and canned varieties if your local supermarket is scarce!
