Tagine Chicken wings and Prawns

Have I talked to you guys about Tagine yet? It’s my secret weapon to cook a quick meal. It’s a bit like one pot meal. I find myself using my cast iron Tagine whenever I am busy, but still want a home cooked meal.

All I need to do is chop all the ingredients and marinate for a while. I normally would like to chop everything when I get home after work and marinate for 30 minutes. During that time, I can go play and feed the pets, or have a glass wine with my hubby.

For this recipe, I made a sauce for the chicken wings and prawns. It has oyster sauce, wholegrain mustard and tomato paste. If you don’t like chick wings, you can always use different meat. I just like chicken wings. It goes well with rice. Otherwise, make a green salad. Dinner is ready! 🙂

  2. Tagine is delicious! I’ve had it in Morocco and France, and especially love it with lamb. Love how versatile it can be. Yours look tasty!

    • Thank you. Glad you like it. I like to use it to cook lamb meatballs with heaps of coriander and turmeric. Quick and delicious! It is very versatile. It doesn’t need much water and oil either. Kind of healthy too. 🙂
