Warm Prawn and Avocado Salad

Carole's Chatter: Warm Prawn and Avocado Salad

This Warm Prawn and Avocado Salad was easy to do.  The only hard part is having an avocado that is at the perfect stage of ripeness!

There are probably better ways to do this but this is how I did it and it turned out ok.  I used a bag of cooked frozen prawns.

I didn't defrost them.  I put sautee them from frozen in hot oil (some of which was garlic infused).  Be careful, the pan will splatter and splutter and generally sound unhappy.  When the prawns were hot I added a small splosh of sherry vinegar for a bit of a tang.

I then mixed the warm prawns through a salad made up of avocado, a radish, ½ a red chilli and 1 tomato.  If I had had something green I would have added it.  Then a drizzle of store bought honey and mustard dressing and salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Hi Carole,

    I love all of the ingredients you use in this delicious looking and sounding dish, although I would have to try and find a replacement for the radish, as it is one of the few things hubbie can't stand!

    Or, I could simply wait for him to be working away and make a big plateful all for myself :)

    Thank you for stopping by Fiction Books today. I love meeting new people, so your visits will always be welcome and your comments always appreciated.

  5. I agree with the others: looks easy and yummy. I almost always have shrimp in the freezer and often pick up avocados.
