You will see from the program that this recipe relies on a Japanese cooking utensil that turns potatoes into long strands like spaghetti. You will also see that the alternative is to cut thin strips of potato and to wrap them around each prawn.


  • 16 green prawns

  • 2 potatoes

  • 2 avocados, medium size and ripe, sliced into segments

  • ½ Spanish onion

  • 2 tomatoes, deseeded and cut into segments

  • vegetable oil for frying

  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons red wine

  • 100 ml extra virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup coriander leaves


  • 1.

    Firstly create a dressing for the salad which accompanies the prawns. Mix together extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, red wine and coriander. Then slice an onion thinly and mix with the dressing. Splash liberally over the tomato and avocado on four plates.

  • 2.

    Cut the potato into thin slices and and wrap around each prawn. In a pot of hot vegetable oil fry until golden. Place four prawns on top of each salad.

Hi, I found a great little gadget at King of Knives called a 'Veggie Twister'. Under $50 and it makes spirals and vegetable spaghetti. Designed in Switzerland and made in Germany. Does a great job.
