300g raw prawns

1 crushed garlic clove

1 tsp lime zest

¼ tsp chili powder

1 tbsp butter

1-2 tbsp lime juice

Avocado Mix

2 tbsp chopped coriander

1 ripe avocado

A splash red wine vinegar

Small handful chopped coriander

½ red onion, peeled and finely chopped

1 red and 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

Juice of half a lime

½ tsp garlic powder

Eight soft shell tacos


Add all the seasoning spices and lime zest to the prawns, mix and set to one side to marinade.

Mash the avocado with the cream, red wine vinegar and coriander and season.  Set to one side.

In a separate bowl mix the Zespri SunGold kiwi with all the vegetables, lime juice, garlic powder and seasoning.  Set to one side.

Heat a griddle or frying pan and add a little oil.  Cook the prawns for a couple of minutes each side until they are cooked through.  Meanwhile heat the tacos in the oven or heat them individually in a dry frying pan, cooking for a few seconds each side.

Serve each taco with a spoonful of avocado mixture, a few prawns and top with the kiwi salsa.
