When i used to live in Dar es Salaam i loved to order this fir a starter. Unfortunately in Australia I haven’t seen it anywhere. But after buying all ingredients for one cocktail ( prawns 40$ a kilo, avocado 4$ per piece) I understand why. Anyway, leaving finances aside, it’s a wonderful salad.
Garlic-2 cloves chopped
Chili-1 red chopped
Lettuce-1/2 cup thinly shredded
For cocktail sauce
Squeeze of lemon
Dash of Tabasco
Olive oil for frying
Peel and devein prawns, keep tails on.
Heat an oil in a frying pan add garlic and chili stir for 30 seconds add prawn and cook for about 4 minutes till turn white. Set aside reserve cooked garlic and chili.
Mix all sauce ingredients in a bawl.
In a glass of your choice, lay down lettuce followed by avocado, sauce and one prawn, repeat the layers.
Arrange prawns around the glass, sprinkle with reserved garlic and chili.
