Prawn Fajitas

It's been so long since I wanted to try Mexican food. I think this one is suitable for lunch box as well and the flavour is so fresh and yummy. The kids love it!. The Mexican flavours of lime, garlic, and coriander infuse these tasty tortilla wraps, served with creamy guacamole that is easy to make should try it!

Here is the recipe :


2 tbsp olive oil
1 red capsicum, thinly sliced
1 large brown onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp smoked paprika
1.2kg large green king prawns, peeled, deveined
12 burrito tortillas
½ cup light sour cream
1 large avocado
1 medium tomato
1 cup coriander leaves, chopped
1 medium red onion
1 lime

Heat half of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Cook capsicum and onion, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 mins, until softened and starting to brown. Add garlic and cook for 30 secs, until fragrant. Transfer to a serving bowl. Cover with foil to keep warm.

Heat remaining oil in same pan on medium heat. Add fennel seeds and paprika and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add prawns and cook, stirring occasionally for 3-4 mins, until just cooked through. Transfer to a serving bowl.

To make guacamole :
Roughly mash the avocado in a bowl, and add 1 finely chopped tomato, 1 finely chopped red onion, chopped coriander, sour cream and juice of 1 lime. Mix and season it.

Meanwhile, heat tortillas according to packet directions.

Serve prawns, capsicum and tortillas with guacamole.

PS : There’s no need to clean the pan after cooking the capsicum, as it will impart a lovely flavour to the prawns.

Enjoy then!
