Recipes PRAWN WRAPS WITH SPICY GREEN VELVET SAUCE

PRAWN WRAPS WITH SPICY GREEN VELVET SAUCE

Prep 15 mins
Cooking 0 mins
Serves 4

Prawns combine with avocado, crème frâiche and our Cape Herb & Spice Sriracha Spice to make for a dreamy tiny tortilla bite. Serve a few with cocktails or bulk up and turn it into a full-on meal.

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • FOR THE GREEN VELVET SAUCE
  • 2 fat cloves garlic, finely sliced
  • juice of 1½ limes
  • zest of 1 lime, finely grated
  • 1½ tsp Cape Herb & Spice SRIRACHA CHILLI
  • large handful of fresh coriander (10 sprigs)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • FOR THE WRAPS
  • 4 Tbsp crème frâiche (or double cream yoghurt)
  • 800g cooked prawn meat
  • 6 Tbsp water
  • 2 packets cocktail-size wholewheat tortillas
  • 1½ ripe avocadoes
  • butter lettuce

- METHOD -

Place all the ingredients for the sauce in a food processor or blender and blitz until velvety smooth. Heat the tortillas, fold a butter lettuce leaf into each cocktail tortilla, top with a few prawns and spoon over a very generous dollop of green velvet sauce. Fold over and tuck in.

(More options for this recipe: #1: If preferred, leave out the tortillas and just use the butter lettuce as a wrap. #2: Use hard shell tacos instead of the tortillas – the crunch of the taco against the smoothness of the velvet sauce is a textural dream. 3#: Shred gem lettuce and layer it in glasses with the prawns and velvet sauce.)
