Smoked Paprika Prawns Cucumber Bites with Green Goddess Cream

© 2023 |

© 2023 |

These super easy prawn cucumber bites are pleasantly spicy, crunchy, fresh and so flavourful. Served with a creamy avocado dip, they are simply fantastic for brunch, or served as low-carb, gluten-free finger food. If you ain't on low-carb, you can then use tortilla scoops in the place of cucumber.

Green Goodness Cream
  • 500 g / 18-20 Tiger prawns with tail intact, peeled and deveined (thaw in the fridge overnight if using frozen)
  • 1 tsp Smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Finely grated lemon rind
  • 2 Small garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers
  • Flat-leaf parsley leave, chopped (to garnish)
  • 1 Small green chilli pepper, cut into rings (to garnish)
  • 125 g Cream cheese
  • 1 Small ripe avocado
  • 30 g Flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  1. Rinse the prawns under the running water. Drain. Place them in a large plate and pat dry with paper towels. Add in smoked paprika, lemon zest, minced garlic and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  2. Heat a large heavy pan on high heat. Cook prawns for 2 minutes each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, place cream cheese, avocado, flat parsley and lemon juice in a small food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Process until smooth, scraping down sides occasionally. Trim and discard ends of cucumbers. Peel the cucumber, either completely removing the skin or in stripes using a vegetable peeler. Or leave the skin on – completely up to you. Cut into 1cm-thick rounds.
  4. Place cucumber rounds on a serving plate. Dollop 2 teaspoons of green goodness cream onto each cucumber round. Top each with 1 prawn. Serve sprinkled with chopped parsley and chilli ring.

Is it goddess or goodness? LOL Green always looks good on dark plates. I made bean and oatmeal crackers this weekend and they turned out real good, glufree and dairy free and vegan.

Hello, Angie
The prawns look delicious, another great recipe. Thanks for sharing. Have a great new week!

Yo lo prefiero así con rodajas de pepino, es una buena combinación con gambas o langostinos y la crema es brutal de rica.
Un beso.

Have made similar before minus the smoked paprika and tad of chilli - well, methinks my recipe may henceforth look a little different :) !

Wow, these Prawn Cucumber Bites with Green Goodness Cream sound like a burst of fresh and zesty flavors! 🦐🥒 The combination of spicy prawns, creamy avocado dip, and the crispness of cucumber rounds is just perfect. Plus, the presentation with chopped parsley and chili rings sounds visually appealing too!
