A fish dish that reminds us of home, with an exotic aroma that draws us to the table. A main course accompanied by the sound of friendly laughter and the smell of the barbecue. That of grilled prawn wraps with coleslaw and avocado salad.
I have always loved piadinas, burritos and wraps. Making them and eating them. Making them because between preparing one ingredient and another I wander through the meanderings of the most beautiful memories, it’s almost cathartic. Eating them because… well, they are precursors to happiness.
With a grilled prawn wrap in your hands, everything feels better, you lose yourself in the tantalizing scent of grilled crustaceans, you become intoxicated by the exotic notes of hummus and avocado, you admire all the nuances of Savoy cabbage. And then you taste it and let the magic happen.
I love today’s grilled prawn wrap because it is a triumph of flavours, fragrances and colours. It’s a very simple recipe that makes a great impression when prepared properly. And all you need to do is follow the few steps below to make it.
For me, any time is good for a homemade wrap, as you’ll find out yourself too, I’m sure.
