Spicy prawn and guacamole cones

Prawn and guac cones edited

Makes 16


  • 1 x 335g pack of corn tortillas, cut in half
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • 1 red chilli
  • Zest of 1 lime, plus extra wedges, to serve
  • 3 spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 ripe tomato
  • Small bunch of fresh coriander
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 250g raw prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 200g guacamole


  1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5.
  2. Microwave the tortillas on high for 20 seconds to make them more pliable.
  3. Carefully roll each tortilla half into a cone shape, ensuring the hole in the bottom isn’t too big. Fold the excess on the inside and press to bond together. Use a toothpick to secure the tortilla together. Place each cone upside down in a cup of a mini muffin tin. Brush olive oil very lightly on the outside of each cone.
  4. Bake the cones for 12-15 minutes until crispy enough to hold their shape. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  5. In a food processor, combine the chilli, lime zest, spring onions, tomato and half of the coriander. Whizz into a coarse marinade.
  6. Place the prawns in a bowl and spoon over the marinade. Allow the prawns to marinate for 30 minutes.
  7. Heat some oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook the prawns for 3-4 minutes per side until pink and cooked through. Remove from the pan and cool.
  8. Fill each cone with about one teaspoon of guacamole and a few of the prawns, then top each with some of the reserved coriander leaves. Serve the prawn and guacamole cones at room temperature.
