Mid Week Quickie – Healthy Gluten Free Prawn Tacos

healthy gluten free prawn tacosPrawns are often overlooked as a dinner option, but they’re so damn quick that when you are in a hurry to get a meal on the table, these are a great way to go. This dish is just like eating tacos, without the tummy hurting tortillas. Kids (and adults) will love building their own wraps and munching away. Since the dish is mostly raw, cooking time is only 6 minutes. After a tiny bit of chopping, everything is ready to go.

Eat for: dinner
Cuisine: gluten free, paleo, dairy free, refined sugar free,
Serves: 2
INGREDIENTS:
  • For the prawns: 200-300grams prawns, uncooked no tails
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 Birdseye chilli, finely diced
  • 1 kaffir lime, finely diced
  • Salt and pepper to garlic
  • Himalayan salt and pepper to taste
  • For the salad: 1 cup Red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 carrot, finely Julienned (aka matchsticks)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • For the tacos: 1 tomato, diced
  • ½ avocado, diced
  • 4 large iceberg lettuce leaves
  • Sesame seeds (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Combine sesame oil and tamari in a jar and shake rigorously until emulsified.
  2. Toss the dressing with cabbage and carrots in a bowl, set aside.
  3. Combine chilli, garlic, prawns, kaffir lime leaf, salt and pepper and toss until combined.
  4. Heat a large skillet (preferably cast iron), then add oil.
  5. On a single layer, place prawns onto the pan, try not to over crowd the pan – you might need to do this in two batches. Leave the prawns without stirring until the underside is caramelised but not burnt – about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Flip and repeat with the other side until cooked through. Do not overlook and try not to fidget with the prawns while cooking else they won’t become tasty and charred.
  7. Remove prawns from heat and place into a bowl.
  8. Serve by starting with a lettuce cup, piling in the salad and sides, then topping with the prawns. If you like a cheeky Kewpie or Siracha, don’t let me stop you.
