  2. In a large frying pan or wok, put 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil along with the garlic and ginger. 

  3. Put over medium-high heat and fry until the garlic and ginger become fragrant. Add the bacon and shallot and fry until the bacon is just crispy. 

  4. Add the prawns and toss to combine. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes until the prawns have just turned pink. Set the bacon and prawns to one side, leaving any bacon fat in the pan.

  5. Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan and add in the cauliflower. Cook for 4 - 6 minutes until just starting to brown and becoming soft. You don't want to cook for too long or the cauliflower becomes soggy. 

  6. Push the cauliflower to one side and pour in the beaten eggs. Scramble the eggs then stir through the cauliflower.
