I love this avocado seafood salad recipe. I’m a huge avocado fan and shrimp (or prawns) are a favorite as well. Prawns and shrimp are two names for the same creature, although shrimp are always known as prawns in the UK. The main different between them is that prawns tend to be a lot bigger than shrimp.
You can cook prawns in various ways including steaming, pan-frying, deep-frying and boiling. In the following seafood salad recipe the prawns are dropped into boiling salted water and cooked within a couple of minutes. A prawn is cooked when it is translucent and the flesh shrinks slightly back away from the shell.
This seafood salad recipe combines avocado with the prawns and these ingredients are wonderful together. Avocado is soft, creamy and slightly nutty and you know how succulent and juicy prawns are, so you can probably imagine the harmony in this dish.
Add some baby salad leaves, a few beansprouts, some crisp iceberg lettuce and a splash of balsamic vinegar and you have a gourmet seafood salad recipe.
The lemon dressing finishes this salad off in style and ties all the contrasting flavors together. If you are looking for a tasty seafood salad, you might enjoy this one.
