Degustabox are a monthly subscription perfect for foodies. Each month takes you on a new adventure, discovering around 10-15 new food and drinks products and seasonal treats as well as some well known household brands. If you love food and you like surprises, this one is for you (just try not to peek online at what's in the box...) 

This month I've collaborated with Degustabox to create an inspiring recipe using the products inside. Delving in April's Degustabox, I came across the likes of Green Lady Sparkling Tea, Pimms Cider and mouthwatering sea salt, garlic & rosemary Popchips. These were all perfect for a weekend picnic in the recent sun.

For this king prawn recipe though, I've taken the latest Levi Roots Jerk Cook 'n' Coat Instant Marinade along with Veetee's Wholegrain and Quinoa Rice. This Caribbean inspired recipe takes just moments to rustle up, leaving you with a vibrant and spicy seafood dish to enjoy on sunny evenings. For the marinade, you simply pour over whilst you cook the king prawns. And the rice is microwavable or easy just to warm up on the hob too as you add in the kidney beans. I served alongside a fresh and zesty mango, lime, avocado and coriander salsa. Bright, healthy, colourful and it goes towards three of your five a day. But most of all, mouthwatering!

(Serves two)
♥ One medium mango, peeled and chopped
♥ One avocado, destoned and cubed
♥ A bunch of fresh coriander, chopped 
♥ Fresh lime juice
♥ Chilli flakes to taste
♥ 200g king prawns, cooked
♥ Jerk Cook 'n' Coat Sauce
♥ Veetee's Wholegrain Rice & Quinoa
♥ 200g red kidney beans

Step one. Firstly make the salsa by combining the mango, avocado, coriander, lime juice, chilli flakes. Adjust to taste.

Step two. Cook together your king prawns with the jerk sauce for around five minutes, until heated through.

Step three. Meanwhile gently heat the rice with a dash of water in a small saucepan. Stir through the kidney beans until piping hot. Serve together immediately!
