Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 large Avocados, halved & de-stoned
  • 12 Shrimp/Prawns, cooked/thawed as necessary
  • 3-4 tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Coriander/Cilantro, finely diced
  • 1 Fresh Mango, de-stoned & finely diced
  • 1 Red Onion, finely diced
  • 1 Red Chilli, deseeded & finely diced
  • 1 Lime, juice only
  • good drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Combine 12 prawns/shrimp with 3-4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce in a bowl, coat well and leave to marinate whilst preparing the salsa.
  • Carefully scoop out most of the avocado from the pitted area (leave a thin layer attached). Finely dice and combine in a bowl with your mango, onion, chilli, coriander/cilantro, lime juice, olive oil and seasoning (to taste).
  • Season the avocado left in the skin with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Scoop back the salsa in to your Avocado skins and top with 3 shrimp/prawns per avocado half.

Notes

a) Are Shrimp/Prawns the same - Small differences (discussed in blog post) but for all intents and purposes you can use either for this recipe.
b) Ripeness of Avocados/Mango - Aim to get slightly firmer avocados and mango than you usually would. This will help hold shape and ensure the salad doesn't turn mushy when combined.
c) Spice - If you like a little less heat to replace the red chilli with capsicum.
d) Leftover Mango Salsa - Depending on the size of your avocados/how much you scoop out, you might have a fair bit of leftover salsa. Any leftover mango salsa goes perfectly with hotdogs, burgers, salmon or simply as a dip with Tortilla Chips.
e) Calories - per avocado with all the salsa, based on using 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and 1 tbsp sweet chilli (approx how much will stick to the prawns/shrimp).
