If you’ve been a reader for a while you probably nearly collapsed when you saw this upload. It was only yesterday the Penne Alfredo with Bacon and Sundried Tomato went live and what a contrast that is to this recipe. Hey, sometimes I like a low-carb low-cal kinda deal. After all, comfort food is key and these are comforting nevertheless!

Stuffed Avocado with Prawns and Mango Salsa

The thing I love most about these stuffed avos (beside the fact they’re so pretty to look at) is that they’re so quick and easy to make. The only skill involved is simply trying not to eat all the ingredients before you’ve constructed them!

Every layer of these stuffed avocados are bursting with colour and flavour, and it all starts with the prawns themselves. Here I simply pop them in some sweet chilli sauce and marinade whilst getting started on the avocado and mango salsa. This will enhance the natural sweetness of the prawns and pair perfectly with the mango salsa.

Speaking of mango salsa, shall we?

The flavours of the salsa itself are balanced so beautifully. You’ve got the sweetness of the mango, balanced with the acidity of the lime and onion, paired with the heat from the chilli and fresh blasts of coriander. All wrapped up with the creaminess of the avocado. Can’t beat it.

Stuffed Avocado with Prawns and Mango Salsa Recipe

Sure, you could serve up the salsa and prawns in bowls, but that means more washing up. Besides, they look so pretty in the avocado shells.

I tend to leave a little avocado in the shell firstly to help hold shape, but most importantly by the time you’ve finished eating the prawns and salsa, the juices sink to the bottom and coat the leftover avocado. By that point it’s time to just grab a spoon and don’t look back.

It was actually really hard to photograph these beauties. I was kinda staring at them, reaching for a fork with one hand and wiping drool with the other. The flavours in this little avocado ‘bowl’ of goodness are so heavenly and I just wanted to tuck right in.

Ingredients
  • 2 Hass Avocados halved & destoned
  • 12 Prawns cooked/thawed as necessary
  • 3-4 tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 1 Fresh Mango destoned & finely diced
  • 1 Red Onion finely diced
  • 1 Red Chilli deseeded & finely diced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Coriander finely diced
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Good drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Black Pepper to taste
Method
  1. Before you get started on chopping your ingredients, pop your Prawns and Sweet Chilli Sauce in a bowl, coat well and leave to marinate whilst preparing the salsa.

  2. Carefully scoop out some of the Avocado from the pitted area, finely dice and combine in a bowl with your Mango, Onion, Chilli, Coriander, Lime Juice, Olive Oil and Seasoning.
  3. Season the Avocado left in the skin.

  4. Scoop back in to your Avocado skins and top with 3 Prawns per Avocado half.
Recipe Notes

a) Aim to get slightly firmer Avocados and Mango than your usual. This will help hold shape and ensure the salad doesn't turn mushy when combined.

 

b) If you like a little less heat to replace the Red Chilli with Capsicum.

 

c) Any leftover Mango Salsa goes perfectly with hotdogs, burgers, salmon or simply as a dip with Tortilla Chips.

    There are never too many ways to enjoy avocados. Hubby thinks I am nuts when I slice one open and just dig in with a spoon. Love the shrimp and mango combo here. Perfect for lunch.

    I am so down with any recipe that calls for a skill of “simply trying not to eat all the ingredients before you’ve constructed them” – these are indeed so pretty – but that mango salsa and chili sauce coated shrimp might not quite get to meet those avocado bowls if they were all in my kitchen! 🙂

      Hahah honestly I’m the worst for eating all my ingredients before it’s done. That bowl of salsa is half the size it started…
