It’s been exactly a year since I started talking about food on a Tuesday on the radio @bbcoxford with @itsmeadamball (happy radio anniversary to me!) 📻
It never occurred to me before now to do a Taco Tuesday recipe?! I’m disappointed in myself to be honest!🤷♀️
Anyway; better late than never and these really are worth waiting for. Truth be told I’ve always been so boring with my fajita fillings, I was brought up on chicken fajitas and never really stray from that but these are not only far quicker to make but they are also packed with flavour and the perfect summer food ☀️
Here’s the recipe if you want to give your tastebuds a treat...
½ red cabbage, finely shredded
Juice 3 limes
1 ripe avocado
200g raw prawns and/or Halloumi
2 tsp fajita spice mix
1 tbsp vegetable oil
8 small soft white tortilla wraps
8 tbsp soured cream
Large handful fresh coriander
Shred the cabbage and add a large pinch of sea salt and the juice of 2 of the limes. Beware of pink hands! 👐
Set aside for 10 minutes to slightly pickle.
Mash the avocado in a small bowl with the remaining lime juice, salt and ground black pepper.
Mix the prawns or halloumi in a bowl with the fajita spice mix and oil. Get a griddle pan hot, then cook for 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
To serve, warm the tortillas in the microwave, then top with the soured cream, pickled cabbage, mashed avocado, prawns and coriander on top.
These are such a flavour bomb! But feel free to mix it up with other veg/cheese/salsa etc.
Enjoy in the sunshine with a beer and forget, for just a moment, about everything that’s going on in the world 🌈
With love & food ❤️🍴
