Squeal and peel also known as pork and prawns

What does “pork and prawns” bring to mind? You’ve heard of “surf and turf” and “reef and beef”. Maybe pork and prawns should be known as “squeal and peel”!

In keeping with the philosophy of Yummy Lummy, i.e., simple and easy to prepare meals for one, “squeal and peel” is made up of three quick and convenient processes. The pork was already cooked by Coles and just needed reheating. The pearl barley couscous was frozen in a ready for microwave oven plastic bag. The raw prawns were already peeled and ready to cook.

What you need for this squeal and peel?

  • I used a Coles Australian Pork Slow Cooked packet of ribs
  • Birdseye frozen pearl barley couscous
  • 100 g of raw peeled prawns from the Coles delicatessen

[I do my grocery shopping at Coles. Coles does not support or sponsor me in any form.]

How do you put it all together?

  1. The pork is cooked (really reheated) in two parts. It requires an initial 20 minutes at 180 °C and then a further 25 minutes at 180 °C after pulling apart the ribs and basting them in the sauce.
  2. The pearl barley couscous is cooked in the microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
  3. I cooked the prawns in hot melted butter for three minutes in a closed nonstick frying pan.

How did I prepare for the photograph?

  1. I put the pearl barley couscous into the bottom of a large white bowl.
  2. The prawns were added with a spoon and then the heated butter poured over the prawns and couscous.
  3. A brace of ribs is added and the bowl is ready to shoot a photograph.
  4. Eat the meal partly with a spoon and mostly with fingers.
  5. Wash the dishes.
  6. Write the recipe.
  7. Make a nice picture using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
  8. Blog and Vlog (verbs)
