Avocado, Prawn and Grapefruit Salad recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 5 minutes

This bright, fresh and zingy salad is made with sour grapefruit, sweet, juicy prawns and creamy, soft avocado. It's perfect as a starter or as a delicious main course through the summer.


  • 450g raw prawns, deveined, shells removed
  • 2 large grapefruits
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 large red onion
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice and fish sauce
  • 1/8 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped coriander


  1. Stir fry the prawns in a frying pan with a little oil until pink, cooked through and juicy.

  2. Peel the grapefruits and use a sharp knife to remove the fruit segments. Slice the avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh of the avocado with a spoon or by using a knife. Dice into chunks. Slice the chilli in half and scrape out the seeds with the back of a knife. Finely dice.

  3. Thinly slice the red onion. In a bowl, toss together the prawns, grapefruits, avocado, red onion and chilli. Pour on the lime juice, fish sauce and sprinkle in the sugar. Stir to combine. Garnish with the chopped coriander.

If grapefruits aren't for you, consider using a handful of baby spinach or some more traditional salad ingredients like shredded carrots. Recipe serves 4.
