  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 15 – 20 Prawns , deveined an peeled
  • 1 Tbsp Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/4 Onion finely diced
  • 1 Red (or Orange or Yellow) Pepper finely diced
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/4 cup or so of Cilantro
  • Salt to Taste


  • Heat the Olive Oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the Prawns when the Oil is hot and sprinkle right away with the Cajun Seasoning. Prawns cook quickly so make sure you dont over cook them. Just about 3 – 5 mins is all you need. Then set aside to cool.
  • In the meantime, dice your Onion, Red Pepper, Tomato and Cilantro. Add these to a bowl and juice your Lime over the veggies.
  • Cut your Avocado in half and take out the pit. My favorite way to dice an Avocado is to take a sharp knife and with the skin on, slice through the Avocado in strips and then again across. Then take a spoon and scoop the flesh out. It will be all nicely diced for you. Ill post a picture of this later. I forgot to take one tonight. Add the Avocado to the mixture and stir to coat it with the lime juice.
  • Remove the tails from the Prawns if you havent already and chop the Prawns into small pieces a little bigger than the diced veggies. Add them to the mix.
  • Season with Salt to taste and then spoon over crackers, tortilla chips, salad, or whatever else. Sprinkle a little chopped Cilantro over top if you want to be fancy. Or dont, it tastes the same lol.
