(serves 2 greedies)
- 24 large raw peeled prawns, tails on
- 1/4 cup lime or lemon pickle
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp plain yoghurt
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1/4 cup fresh coriander

- 1 x 200 gram tin black beans, rinsed & drained
- 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 cup cucumber, diced
- 1 avocado, sliced

- lime wedges
Prawns: Put all the ingredients, except the prawns, in a food processor & blend until smooth. Tip into a bowl & add the prawns, turning to coat. Cover & refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
Dressing: Place all the ingredients in a food processor & blend until smooth. Season.
Salad: Put the black beans, tomatoes & cucumber in a bowl & toss with half the dressing.
To cook: Heat a little oil in a non-stick fry pan & cook the prawns for 2 minutes each side or until just cooked through.
To assemble: Place 2-3 lettuce leaves in each dish & top with the bean salad and 1/4 of an avocado. Arrange the prawns over the beans then a small pile of pickled onions and a wedge of lime. Spoon the remaining dressing over the avocado with a grind of pepper. Alternatively pile everything onto a large platter or salad bowl and let everyone help themselves - like we did :)
