Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).

Step 2

Place the capsicum, onion and chilli in a bowl and add the olive oil, seasoning and 1 teaspoon of salt and mix well to ensure the veggies are well coated.

Step 3

Spread out to cover half a large baking tray and roast for 20 minutes until cooked through and slightly caramelised.

Step 4

While the veggies are roasting, make the salsa (if having) by mixing together the avocado, lime zest and juice, coriander and a pinch of salt.

Step 5

Once the veggies are cooked, turn the oven setting to grill/broil and place the prawns on top of the veggies on the baking tray and squeeze the lime juice over the prawns and sprinkle on the garlic salt and next, add the tortillas to the tray too and grill/broil for 5 minutes until the prawns are cooked through.

Step 6

Serve straight from the tray with extra coriander and lime wedges so everyone can make their own tacos.

Daily Inspiration

Very tasty shrimp tacos. I generally make them with chicken or beef so this was a nice change. The only change I made was to reduce the amount of salt. Served with sliced avocado, cilantro, queso fresco and sour cream on the side.
