Prawn and Avocado Salad

Prawn and Avocado Salad

Ingredients Serves 4

1620 shelled large raw prawns
1 ripe mango

1 ripe avocado
60g small salad leaves
Juice of 2 limes
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
1 tablespoon drained red peppercorns in brine
Small handful of coriander, roughly chopped
To serve: 1 lime, cut into wedges


If the prawns are damp, pat dry on kitchen paper.

Peel, halve, stone and slice the mango and avocado thinly.

Mix the sliced fruit with the salad leaves and divide between four plates.

 Squeeze over the juice of one of the limes and season with salt.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the prawns and fry for four minutes or so, turning once, until they have turned pink.

Scatter over the peppercorns and shake the pan for a few seconds to heat them through.

Now take the pan off the heat, squeeze over the juice of the other lime and season with salt. Spoon the prawns, peppercorns and pan juices over the salads. Scatter over the coriander and serve swiftly, with lime wedges
