What do i need?

  • Juicy prawns! Today I have used large tail on prawns because they are big and juicy and I like the way they look! I always have a bag of frozen prawns in my freezer for recipes like this! I buy mine from Costco or Wing Yip.
  • For the prawn marinade you will need, lime, coriander, garlic, cayenne pepper and olive oil.
  • What lettuce? I like to use a mix. Today I have used some red romaine, and leafy green lettuce.
  • Mango and cucumber chunks are a must for this recipe. Make sure your mango is ripe!
