Today, I’m going to share a recipe for spiced prawn tacos with you, I feel I need to start this post off by saying that when I first saw this combo of spices and prawns, I wasn’t expecting great things (cinnamon and prawns, what the hell?!)
To be honest, I thought there was no way it was going to work, and my first thought was that it was going to taste like shit…
I’ll pretty much try anything though, so pushing my doubt aside, I decided to give it shot. I’m glad I did, because holy crap, these tacos were fantastic (I actually ended making bigger batch of the spice mix, so I’ve always got some on hand)
If you make these – I hope you enjoy them, and if you do, let me know what you thought of the spice/prawn combo.
Spiced Prawn Tacos
A recipe for spiced prawn tacos, using cinnamon, cardamom and ginger; this recipe spicy, a little salty and would be great paired with a beer.
In a small container, combine the spices and set aside. Then chop the prawns, place in a small bowl and cover in as much of the spice mix as you would like (it's completely up to you)
Add a glug of oil and the onions to a frying pan. Cook on a medium high heat stirring occasionally until the onions start to sizzle a little. Add the tomatoes and continue cooking until onions are translucent.
Add the prawns to the pan, stirring occasionally until thooked through. Remove from the heat and serve tacos with guacamole, coriander and sour cream.
When adding the tomatoes, add some chives or spring onions to add some more flavour.
We use corn tortillas, and steam them in non-stick pan without using oil (if you want yours a little crispier, you can fry them in oil until soft)
Today we headed out to La Boca Loca in Miramar for lunch. It was Phillip’s first time there, I’ve been trying to get him out there since they opened, because they’re pork tacos are amazing. It’s a bit far out though, and was even more of a mission to get to before we got our car. Continue reading →
