Prawn Laska Soup

Most people on a diet wouldn't even consider having a traditional prawn and laska soup for dinner because of the coconut milk it contains. However, if you substitute regular coconut milk for reduced fat coconut milk, even those on a diet can enjoy a dish as delicious as this one. This recipe features in one of our weight loss diets for everyday people.

This recipe is low in fat and is a good source of protein.

If Prawns aren't your thing, replace them with 500g of cooked chicken. For a vegetarian option, the prawns can be replaced with 500g of firm Tofu and the salt-reduced chicken stock can be replaced with salt-reduced vegetable stock.
