Recipe: BLT salad with prawns & avocado

I like to think of this salad as a deconstructed BLT sandwich where bread has been replaced with more nutritious and tastier prawns and avocado. It’s my regular go-to lunch or a dinner on those nights when I don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. Super easy and delicious.

Cook’s notes: I often use pre-cooked, frozen prawns for this recipe. I place frozen prawns in a bowl of hot water and let them thaw out for about 5-10 minutes. Alternatively, you can pick some cooked prawns from your deli or fishmonger or cook raw prawns. You can grill some chicken or steak if avoiding shellfish.

Ingredients

  • Small dollop of coconut oil
  • 3 rashes of streaky bacon (2 of them diced)
  • 1 small garlic clove, diced
  • 10 cooked prawns
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce
  • 5 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 red capsicum/bell pepper, sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp diced green onion/scallions
  • 1/2 acovado, sliced

For the dressing

  • 1 tbsp lime juice (lemon is also fine)
  • 1 tsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Pinch of sea salt

  3. Mix the salad dressing and combine with the salad ingredients and bacon.Top with sliced avocado and warm prawns.

  • Gut health mission! The last two months have been busy, a little stressful and filled with various indulgencies, lots of flying and not having a routine. This often (more like 100% of the time) leads to disrupted gut flora and generally poor gut health, which in turn compromises out immune system. 😷😰😣 So on top of getting my diet back to normal (I eat mostly paleo) and getting into my usual sleeping and fitness routine, I'm stocking up on probiotics. I made a batch of kefir (way too easy) and got some ready made raw sauerkraut (I should really make my own but that's for next week). If you feel like you often come down with colds, flu or just feeling off, look at your gut health first. Always helps me 😃 #guthealth #healthyeating #healthyliving #paleo #nourishing #kefir #jerf #westonaprice #fermentation

  • Thai lunch for one 😉 Salmon tartare, grilled chicken with herbs, veggies and fish cakes. Fresh coconut with lime! At Cafe Chilli (Siam Paragon). Great food but overpriced as you can get equally good grub much cheaper at the markets or in a street cafe. Paying for the aircon. At least I'm doing research 😋😎 #bangkok #food #thai #foodie #travel #recipeplanning #paleo #primal #glutenfree
