King Prawns

  1. Whisk together the olive oil, garlic, ground cumin, chilli powder, onion powder and salt. Add the king prawns and mix well making sure marinade is all over the king prawns. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or up to 24 hours
  2. Heat a large pan on high heat add the olive oil and king prawns, turn the heat down to medium-high heat and cook until pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes
  3. Turn off heat and finish with a squeeze of lime (optional)

    Avocado Salsa

  4. To make the avocado salsa combine avocado, tomato, jalapeno, salt, pepper, lime juice, and coriander and set aside. (If not using right away, place a piece of cling film inside the bowl and directly over salsa to prevent discoloration and refrigerate)
  5. To assemble combine the sour cream with coriander and lime juice, set aside
  6. Grill tortillas until lightly charred (this step is optional). Spoon avocado salsa generously over warm tortillas, then top with 3 king prawns and drizzle with sour cream sauce. Serve tacos with lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
