  • 165g pack extra large raw king prawns
  • 2 tbsp Ottolenghi Pomegranate, Rose & Preserved Lemon Harissa
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 125g halloumi, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 6 Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps, warmed, to serve
  • 170g tub guacamole, to serve
  • 150ml tub Essential Soured Cream, to serve
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, to serve

For the salad

  • ½ x 25g pack coriander, leaves only, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 40g pomegranate seeds
  • 1 echalion shallot, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1 large red chilli, thinly sliced (optional)


  1. Add the prawns to a small bowl with 1½ tbsp harissa, mix well and leave for 5 minutes, or up to a maximum of 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, to make the salad, combine the coriander leaves, lime juice, pomegranate seeds, shallot and a pinch of salt in a small bowl, then set aside.

  3. Add ½ tbsp oil to a medium frying pan and place over a high heat. Add the halloumi, then fry for 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until soft and golden brown all over. Add the remaining oil, the prawns and their marinade to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring and turning, until the prawns are pink and opaque and just cooked through.

  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the remaining ½ tbsp harissa. Serve with the tortillas, guacamole, soured cream and salad, garnished with red chilli (if using), and lime wedges on the side for squeezing over.
