Australian Prawns

BBQ’d Prawn rolls with Charred Corn Avocado Smash

Green and Gold ingredients for a classic Aussie BBQ. These rolls are easy to make and you can joke with all the Millenials around that the smashed avo is far more preferable to owning your own home. Seriously, just taste them.

Prep Time25 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time45 mins


 2 corn cobs, husks removed
 Olive oil for drizzling
 24 large green Australian prawns, peeled
 5 limes, halved
 3 avocados, halved
 ½ small Spanish onion, diced
 1 garlic clove, crushed
 1 small red chilli, finely chopped
 ½ cup coarsely chopped coriander
 small fluffy white rolls to serve
 hot sauce to serve



Preheat a barbecue to high.


Drizzle corn with a little oil and grill for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender and slightly blackened. At the same time, barbecue lime halves for 4-5 minutes, cut-side down, until slightly blackened.


Drizzle prawns with a little oil and squeeze over the juice of a barbecued lime half.


Scoop avocado into a bowl, add onion, garlic, chilli and a little oil, season to taste and coarsely crush. Squeeze in juice of barbecued lime to taste, stir in coriander and set aside.


Barbecue the prawns, turning once, until they’re just cooked through (3-4 minutes). Meanwhile, cut corn kernels from cobs.


Remove prawns from barbecue and tuck hem into fluffy rolls with corn, smashed avocado and mayonnaise. Serve with barbecued lime halves and hot sauce as an option.

Serves 4.
