Serves 4 


Betsita’s Caribbean magma

400g to 800g of prawns

2 diced tomatoes

½ small red onion (thinly sliced) 

1 bunch of cilantro (ideally cilantro, but this time I couldn’t find a good one, so had to use a homegrown Cuban oregano instead)

8 lemons squeezed (you can use less, if this is too citrusy for you)

2 large avocados cut into small cubes

1 diced yellow capsicum

1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil (optional) 

Salt and pepper to taste


Blanche the prawns in boiling water for about 1 to 2 minutes (depending on the size of the prawns) or until they start turning orange, then shock them in cold water and strain when cooled

Add the lemon juice and marinate for 30 mins to 1 hour

Add the rest of the ingredients and marinate for 30 mins more (for a quick recipe, no need to marinate more, unless you'd like to enhance a more citrus flavour in all ingredients) 

Add salt and pepper to taste

Add Betsita’s Caribbean Magma, to your taste
