The crisp sweet flavour of the locally grown Pink Lady apple with the smooth avocado make this salsa a winner, it will go with almost any grilled or barbequed meat so don’t just save it for the prawns.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
for the salsa:
1 Pink Lady apple, cored and cubed
1 ripe avocado, halved, skin and stone removed, cubed
juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
for the prawns:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed
300g large raw prawns
1 large red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped or 1 tsp chilli flakes
zest and juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp fresh coriander, roughly chopped or torn
What to do:
First make the salsa by combining all the ingredients together, place in a bowl, cover and leave in the fridge until ready to serve.
Heat the olive oil and butter in a large frying pan, add the garlic and cook over a medium heat for a few seconds. Increase the heat to high and add the prawns and chilli or dry chilli flakes, stirring continuously until the prawns are nice and pink and cooked through.
Add the zest and juice of the lime and sprinkle with the coriander, serve immediately with the salsa on the side and some crusty bread to soak up all the lovely juices.
