Avocado is mashed until it turns into a paste with lemon juice and pepper. Absolutely original, it is a fantastic combination.

Directions

  1. Mash the avocados, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, and parsley together in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat; cook the garlic in the hot oil until slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the prawns and increase heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir the prawns over medium heat until they begin to change color. Reduce heat to low. Stir the avocado mixture into the prawns; cook until the avocado is completely heated, about 2 minutes. Garnish with a little bit of black pepper to serve.

It's really good but a lot of avocado. I used half the recommended amount and I put it over pasta and it was great.

This is really good. I made it as a side dish served next to Lemon Garlic Talapia. I served it over fresh green beans and it was good, a little thicker then i thought it would be. I was expecting more of a sauce but it was still good!

Original and refreshing way to make butterfly shrimp! Go easy on the lemon and add a bit of white wine to make a reduction in the pan. Highly recommended.
