food. prawn tacos.

I made these a lot last summer but forgot
Prawn Tacos
about the recipe until making our menu this week. Quick, easy, delicious - the salsa is even better the next day!

Note: Original recipe is Shrimp Tacos but we don't have shrimp in Australia and this isn't a salad. Spend the money to get some local prawns from your seafood guy.

Prawn Tacos from, submitted by: abewasabe | Serving Size: 4

1 mango - peeled, seeded and diced
1 ripe avocado - peeled, seeded and diced
2 tomatoes - diced
1/4-1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
1/4 red onion, diced
3 large cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp of salt
2 tbls of lime juice
500 g (1 pound) of prawns
4 tortillas, warmed (or not - Nate goes cold turkey)

Mix together the following ingredients in a big bowl: mango, avocado, tomatoes, coriander (cilantro), red onion, 2 of the 3 garlic cloves, salt, and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate to let the flavours mix together. 

Heat some olive oil in a large pan, add 1 garlic clove. Let it do it's thing for about 2-3 min. Add your prawns and cook until pink.

When ready, just dish up your tacos! Prawns + salsa = bomb( for my sister).

Jen's Notes
I am currently on a sriracha kick so I added ample amount of the stuff to my tacos. Nate did mention it didn't need it - for anyone thinking it wouldn't be good without the kick of heat.
