Healthy Thai style Sweet & Sour Prawn Stir-Fry
Sweet and sour is one of the most popular dishes found in Chinese and Thai cooking. However, shop bought sauces and the versions found in takeaways are so full of sugar, fat and all kinds of additives that they really aren’t a healthy option. Even if they do have some token pineapple in them. Enzymes in pineapple have been found to help muscle repair and heal minor injuries, so are great included in your diet during a big strength block of training, when trying to build more muscle.
For ease, in this recipe I used frozen pineapple chunks. In general frozen fruit or vegetables are as nutritious as fresh, in many cases arguably more. You could easily use fresh, if you have the time to prepare it, or canned but just be sure to buy it in it’s own juice and not syrup. I buy my lemongrass already pureed as I’m not too sure what I’m doing with fresh lemongrass but the recipe where I got my inspiration from uses fresh if you prefer. If you don’t have any straight to wok noodles, then you could either use dried, just boil them first, or just serve it with rice, It would taste just as yum.
