Ingredients (Serves 2):

  • 300-350g of cooked prawns, peeled (I kept the heads and tails on 2 of the prawns to use as garnish)
  • 1 small chorizo sausage, diced
  • 1 avocado, roughly diced
  • 2 slices of bread (I used multi grain), diced into cubes
  • 1 cos/little gem lettuce, torn into large pieces
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp of mild chili sauce
  • A splash of Tabasco
  • A pinch of smoked paprika


1) Preheat the oven to 200°C/390℉.

2) Fry the chorizo in a non stick frying plan until crispy, remove with a slotted spoon, reserving the oils in the pan.

3) Add the cubed bread into the pan coating it in the chorizo oil then transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 10-12 mins until golden.

4) Meanwhile mix the mayo, sour cream, chili sauce, Tabasco and paprika to make the dressing.

5) Add the prawns, avocado, croutons, chorizo and lettuce into a large bowl with half of the dressing and mix.

6) Arrange on the plate, drizzle the remaining dressing on top and sprinkle on some more paprika and serve.
