  • 400 g prawns, vein removed
  • 2 large grapefruit, or 1 large pomelo, peeled and segmented, (see Cook's tip)
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 small ripe avocados, chopped into medium sized chunks
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce, such as Blue Dragon
  • 1 red chilli, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • pinches brown sugar, to taste
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves

Tips and Suggestions

For extra colour and sweetness replace a normal grapefruit with a pink one.

A pomelo looks just like a large grapefruit, except when you peel it, it has a very pale, drier flesh and a pith that can be 4-5cm thick.


1. Add the prawns to a large ban of salted boiling water and cook for about 3-5 minutes until pink and cooked through.

2. Place the grapefruit segments, onion and avocado in a serving dish. Arrange the prawns on top and drizzle with the fish sauce. Toss to mix well.

3. Sprinkle with coriander leaves and serve immediately.
