    1. Put the kale into a large bowl and pour over 1 tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Massage the kale gently with your hands to make sure its all covered (make sure your hands are clean!). Let the kale sit for 30 minutes.
    2. Thaw the prawns under some cold water. Once thawed place them on paper towels and pat them dry. Place them into a bowl and cover them.
    3. Place all the vegetables into a bowl.
    4. Add all the salad dressing ingredients into another bowl and whisk until smooth.
    5. Heat a frying pan over medium heat, add the coconut oil, prawns and piri piri seasoning. Cook until the prawns are opaque, 3 to 5 minutes, occasionally stirring. Remove them from the heat.
    6. To the bowl with the kale, add the vegetables, quinoa and prawns. Now pour over the dressing and mix all together.
