King prawn tacos with Lililup salsa

By November 2, 2020November 20th, 2020No Comments


  • 1 Lililup melon
  • 10 fresh king prawns
  • 5 corn tortillas
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 Greek yoghurt
  • ½ red onion
  • 3 limes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Chop the red onion and marinade in the lime juice. Set aside.
  • Wash the melon well, as it will be used to serve. Make a small cut at the bottom so it stands up.
  • Cut the “lid” off and, using a spoon or a scoop, remove as much of the flesh from the melon as possible.
  • Discard the seeds and chop the pulp.
  • Peel the avocado, remove the flesh and mash it with a fork. Add salt, pepper and lime juice to taste. Set aside.
  • Put the tortillas in a frying pan until they are slightly brown on each side.
  • Peel the prawns and sauté them in the frying pan with a little oil
  • Assemble the tacos on a plate, add a layer of avocado then the sautéed prawns on top, and finally some lime zest.
  • The final touch! Serve with our melon salsa: mix the melon with the red onion and a little salt and pepper. Put the salsa in the melon and serve alongside the tacos.

A recipe with ingredients bursting with flavour and seasoning that will put a smile on everyone’s face with every mouthful. Avocado and king prawn tacos are light and tasty, with a sweet, crunchy yoghurt salsa with Lililup melon for the perfect combination. A healthy option from María Saboreanda.

Enjoy an innovative concept – it’s healthy, too.

The full, juicy tacos are cooked in a tasty mixture of spices, then they are covered in the special yoghurt and Lililup melon sauce, a deliciously sweet, uniquely sized melon.  It is also served in the melon itself, making it even more appealing.
