Beatitude Recipes: Spicy Prawn Lettuce Cups

April 17, 2018


Spicy prawn lettuce cups
Serves 4



  • Spray-free cos lettuce washed & separated into cups (3 per person – 12 total)

  • 3 avocados sliced into bite-sized cubes

  • Washed & shredded red cabbage

  •  Prawns (4 per lettuce cup)

  • Coriander

  • Lime sliced into quarters

  • 1 Tsp peri-peri seasoning (this one was from the farmers markets and had chilli, garlic & parsley)

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

In a frying pan, heat olive oil on a low-medium heat and cook prawns until completely cooked. Add in peri-peri seasoning and mix through – you can add more seasoning if you prefer a spicier flavour. Arrange lettuce cups onto plates or one large platter, and in each cup add ½ handful of red cabbage, ¼ of sliced avocado, 4 prawns and top with chopped coriander. Serve with wedge of lime.

Why I love this dish:
This meal is a great way to spice up lunch! It is lightweight yet filling, loaded with protein, fiber and fat to keep you feeling satisfied.

  • Prawns are a rich source of zinc, essential for healthy skin cell structure and optimal functioning of the skin

  • Avocados contain monounsaturated fatty acids, B vitamins, vitamin E and fibre

  • Coriander is blood purifying and helps to detoxify the body from heavy metals & toxins

  • Lime is rich in vitamin C, potent antioxidant necessary for the production of collagen and elastin and strengthening the immune system

  • Red cabbage is rich in anthocyanins that give it the beautiful purple pigment, increasing its antioxidant properties that provide cardiovascular protection and promoting healthy red blood cells.

Note: If you want to fill these cups with a few more veggies, try adding some diced up tomato, red onion & corn for a beautiful combination of fresh flavours.
