Prawn Saganaki

This is the kind of dish that makes you dream that you are on a Greek Island, sipping on ouzo and enjoying the sea and the sun.  Prawns are high in iodine which is required for thyroid function and brain health.  They are high in omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids and are high in protein and low in calories.
