Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Chipotle Prawn Bruschetta

I know I’m mixing my cuisine’s using Mexican inspired flavours as a topping for a Bruschetta but these bites are delicious and take 10 minutes to make. The prawns, guacamole and mayo can also be loaded into tacos with salad as a light lunch or dinner.

Makes: 12

Prep: 3 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 13 minutes

Difficulty: easy


For the Chipotle Prawns:
12 shell off raw king prawns
1 tsp chipotle paste
1 tbsp olive oil

For the guacamole:-
1 avocado
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of half a lemon
Salt & Pepper

For the Lime Mayo:
4 tbsp mayonnaise
Juice of a lime

1 French stick, baguette or ciabatta loaf sliced 1.5 cm thick

Mix together the prawns, chipotle paste & olive oil.

Mash the avocado and combine with the lemon juice, seasoning & olive oil.

Combine the Mayo & lime juice.

Get a frying pan searing hot & cook the prawns for 2 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile toast the bread slices under a grill for a minute each side or bake in a 180 oven for 10 minutes.

Spread each bread slice with the guacamole, top with a little lime mayo and then a prawn. I like to butterfly them (just slice down the back leaving the fatter end attached).

Drizzle with any juices from the pan.
