King Prawn Sandwich

King Prawn Sandwich

Home | Recipes |

This king prawn sandwich isn’t a million miles away from a chipotle prawn cocktail and it’s equally delicious.

Get your hands on some nice big, juicy king prawns and some crusty bread and you’re well on your way to a great sandwich. Thinly sliced avocado, some crisp salad leaves and a drizzle of lime-spiked Chipotle Mayo take it to another level.

To make a meal of it, try serving this prawn sandwich with our Mexican Tortilla Soup recipe.

How to make it

  1. Depending on how you’re cooking your prawns, either get your barbecue or griddle pan very hot.
  2. Put the prawns in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. When the barbecue or griddle pan is hot, place the prawns on the cooking surface and leave for a couple of minutes. Take care not to burn them. Carefully flip them and cook the other side.
  4. In a bowl, squeeze the lime juice and mix well with the Gran Luchito Chipotle Mayo.
  5. Dress the salad leaves in a little olive oil, salt and pepper.
  6. Slice the avocado thinly.
  7. Toast slices of bread on the barbecue/griddle pan.
  8. Build the ingredients into a sandwich, drizzling the mayo over the prawns.
