Prawn tacos

Peppers are a great source of antioxidant beta-carotene, which with the delicious spices in this dish, make it wonderfully anti-inflammatory. This dish also works well with chicken or white fish.
  • Prep time:
    10 minutes
  • Cooking time:
    15-20 minutes
  • Serves:


Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Put the prawns, peppers, red cabbage, onions and sweetcorn in a bowl, and drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper and combine gently.

Place this mixture on a large baking tray and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Remove the tray, add fresh coriander and lime juice, and stir well.

Place the mashed avocado, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix together.
