I have found the recent hot weather to be very helpful for my diet. Firstly, it is too hot to cook. Secondly, I don’t feel like eating huge meals at the moment. Thirdly, we are eating later and later so I am finding myself leaning towards much smaller portions…although my ice-cream intake has gone up significantly!
These lovely little toasts are a great snack, lunch or light supper and the flavours work together perfectly!
For one person you will need:
1 crusty roll or bread, toasted
Half an avocado, mashed
1 tomato, chopped
Some fresh coriander, chopped
A pinch of chili flakes
Salt and pepper
6 -8 king prawns
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
A pinch of paprika
How to make it
- For the prawns: heat some olive oil in a pan and fry the prawns until pink, add the garlic clove and cook until golden brown then finish with a pinch of paprika
- For the avocado layer: make a rough guacamole by mixing together the avocado, tomato, coriander and chili. Mix well and season to taste
- Toast the bread
- Assemble your toasts by spreading the avocado mixture onto the toasted bread and top with the prawns…so simple yet delicious!
