Ginger & citrus prawn and avocado tacos

Zesty and filling, this recipe has family dinner all wrapped up. The prawns could easily be swapped for Essential British Turkey Breast strips, if preferred - cook for 4 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

  • 2 x 150g packs Essential Cooked King Prawns
  • 1 5cm piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 2 unwaxed limes, zest and juice (see Cook’s tip)
  • 1 Essential Red Grapefruit, ½ zest and juice, ½ segmented and chopped
  • 2 tbsp Essential Olive Oil
  • 25g pack coriander, leaves finely chopped
  • 1 small Essential Onion, finely chopped
  • 8 Gran Luchito Mexican Soft Taco Wraps
  • 1 pack Essential Little Gem Lettuce, shredded
  • 2 ripe Essential Home Ripening Avocados, sliced


  1. Pat the prawns dry with kitchen paper. In a bowl, toss together the prawns, ginger, lime and grapefruit zest, plus 1 tbsp oil. Season and set aside. In a separate bowl, make a relish by mixing the chopped grapefruit, coriander and onion, lime and grapefruit juice and remaining 1 tbsp oil. Season and set aside.

  2. Heat the tortillas according to pack instructions, then cover and set aside. Heat a large frying pan over a medium high-heat. Add the prawns and spread them evenly into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until opaque and piping hot throughout.

  3. To build the tacos, top each wrap with lettuce, prawns, avocado and a spoonful of the coriander relish. Serve immediately.

Cook’s tip

These tacos are mild in flavour, making them great for young family members or those who are sensitive to spice. However, if there are heat lovers at the table, add some chilli, or serve the tacos with hot sauce. When using the zest from regular citrus, rather than unwaxed, give them a good scrub in hot water and dry before use.
