Chilli & Garlic Prawn Salad with Avocado

This is a fancy alternative to your standard prawn cocktail. The perfect traditional seafood dish with a twist. Beautiful, fast and versatile – just like the Uuni!

Recipe
450g of prawns
1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 chillies, chopped
handful of fresh parsley
4 tbs mixed seeds
6 tbs olive oil
Fresh salad leaves
1 avocado, sliced

Method
Rinse your prawns in cold water and drain them.
Marinate them for an hour in a bowl with the seeds, garlic, oil, parsley and chopped chilli.
Now light up your Uuni and keep it hot. These prawns cook on a high temperature.
While you’re waiting for the Uuni to heat up, prepare your salad leaves, chop your avocado and serve into bowls.
Pour your marinated prawns into a pan and place in the Uuni for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve the hot prawns on top of your prepared salads and enjoy.
