Plant-based Prawn & Avocado Cocktail

This plant-based prawn cocktail is a real crowd pleaser. An impressive starter at your next dinner party, or enjoy as a delicious and satisfying lunch. The addition of avocado makes this super creamy and fresh. 

If you can't find plant-based prawns in your local supermarket you can omit them - it still tastes great. The jackfruit can be found in a tin in your local supermarket. Jackfruit is full of vitamin A, B and C, plus fibre and potassium. It's great for eye health and keeping your heart healthy too! The fleshy texture of jackfruit makes it a great substitute for fish, and it also makes a wonderful BBQ 'pulled pork' - so you definitley want to give jackfruit a try!
