Chilli Honey Prawn Platter with Avocado Whip

Labels: { , }

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

Ready in just 15 minutes, this recipe is easy and super-fast yet jam-packed full of layers of delicious flavours.
The sweet and spicy flavours of the honey chili sauce are perfect with the prawns. And the light and creamy avocado whip comes together with just 5 ingredients and complements the whole dish so deliciously. It can be served as a dip or as a sauce. Add your own touches with fresh herbs like coriander, basil or parsley.
I used ready-cooked prawns from ALDI, but you can of course get some raw jumbo prawns and cook yourself.

Chilli-Honey SauceAvocado Whip
  • 250 Cooked prawns
  • Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 Chilli pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Shallot, finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp Lemon/lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted
  • 60 g Full fat sour cream (or Greek yogurt)
  • 2 tbsp Freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
  • 1 Garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  1. To make the chilli-honey sauce, in a medium bowl, combine chilli, garlic, shallot, 2 tbsps of lemon/lime juice, honey and oil. Season chilli-honey sauce with salt and more lime juice, if necessary.
  2. To make the whipped avocado crema, in a food processor or blender, process or blend avocado, sour cream, lemon/lime juice, garlic and salt until completely smooth. Spread crema in an even layer over a serving platter.
  3. Coarsely chop 1 tbsp of the coriander. Add to the chilli-honey sauce with the prawns and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Spoon the prawn mixture over the avocado crema on the platter. Sprinkle with the remaining coriander. Drizzle the rest of sauce over. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

avocado whip is appealing for me....yummy

Happy Retiree's Kitchen 9/7/20 07:30

Oh yes I love a chilli honey dressing with my prawns, great with BBQ prawns as well. So clever to combine this with an avocado dip. Yum. I must try this combination when summer arrives.Thanks Angie

Jeff the Chef 9/7/20 15:15

I'm especially interested in that avocado whip. Thanks for the recipe!

Fran @ Gday Souffle 9/7/20 16:25

This recipe has all my favorite flavors: chili, lime, and avocado. I usually buy raw shrimp since I find pre-cooked shrimp to be too leathery.

Anca 9/7/20 16:36

The avocado whip sounds really nice, I'd love to try it.

Whats Cookin Italian Style Cuisine 9/7/20 16:51

Oh, this sounds like a pairing made in heaven!! Spicy shrimp with creamy avocadoes---yum!!

This looks great, it's so colourful. I've seen a few recipes now where you mix sour cream and avocado and I really want to give it a go, really like that you've called it a 'whip' too!

Marcelle 10/7/20 15:25

I've been super focused on no-cook meals lately, Angie! This one looks fantastic! I wouldn't share it LOL <3

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 10/7/20 17:43

I love the idea of avocado whip beneath fresh prawns.I have all of the ingredients on hand, amazingly enough, so I need to give this a try.

These photos are beautiful Angie! Prawns are my favourite shellfish, so this dish is my idea of heaven on a plate. I can't recall ever having prawns with honey before, but YUM it sounds like a winning combination! xo

Being a vegan, I don't eat prawns, but the sauce and the avocado whip recipes look really delicious. I might be able to use them with tofu- thank for sharing them Angie.

Angie those orangish prawns and the vibrant green avo whip totally complement each other. Love the sweet and savoury combo here. With summer bringing the roofs down, this simple recipe can be a lifesaver. Thanks
