Everyone loves prawn taco’s with a delicious homemade guacamole! This recipe also has added health benefits of sauerkraut and fennel added to the cabbage slaw to feed a healthy gut microbiome and support digestion. 

Serves 4


  • Hagen’s garlic and chilli prawns
  • ¼ green cabbage- thinly sliced (400g)
  • 1-2 limes 
  • 2 ripe avocados- smashed 
  • 2 medium carrots- grated 
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • A handful of fresh coriander -chopped (1/4 cup)
  • Salt and Pepper 
  • 6 cherry tomatoes – quartered 
  • ½ small red onion- finely diced 
  • 2 forkfuls of sauerkraut or ½ cup 
  • 2 tablespoons of thinly sliced fennel 
  • 8 corn tortillas 


  1. Slaw:Begin by adding your shredded cabbage to a large bowl. Scrunch together with your hands to create a juice from the cabbage. Add in grated carrot, sauerkraut, fennel and 1/2 lime juiced. Season with salt and then mix well. Pop into the fridge.
  2. Chunky Guacamole: In a bowl, smash your avocados well with the back of a fork. Add in the juice of half a lime, tomatoes, red onion, coriander and season with salt and pepper. Stir well. If you like a more tangy flavour, add another ½ lime juiced- I do! Pop in the fridge until serving.  
  3. Taco’s: Heat two large pans and lightly fry your corn tortillas for a minute either side. No oil needed for this. Wrap in a clean tea towel for serving. 
  4. Prawns: Heat a large pan and drizzle with olive oil. Add prawns and fry for 1-2 minutes either side until golden and cooked through. 
  5. Assembling:  Take your tortilla, add a heaped tablespoon of guacamole, some slaw and then add your prawns on top. 
  6. Optional toppings: Another squeeze of lime juice and fresh coriander.
