Prawn and Avocado Tian Recipe

Hey! I thought i’d try to make my first Tian, inspired by the food that i served while working in a restaurant. Here is my quick and easy recipe to make some. It took me about 40 minutes to prepare and I managed to make 5 ramekins and 1 in a small mug out of the ingredients.


The ingredients are;

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • soft cheese (i used lactose free)
  • 1 cucumber (i only used 1/3 though)
  • 1 lemon
  • 150g fresh king prawns
  • sweet chilli sauce
  • ramekins (or any small container, i’ve tried it in a small mug before!)
  • tomato sauce or puree

You will also need a knife, small spoon, fork, chopping board, and a bowl.


Step by Step

  1. Cut the avocados in half, remove the stone and scoop out the contents. Chopping them up on the chopping board will make step 2 easier!
  2. Put the avocado into the bowl and mash it up with a fork.
  3. Squeeze out the juice from the lemon into the bowl.
  4. Continue to mix until there are no big chunks of avocado.
  5. Add a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce and tomato sauce/puree and mix in again.P1060731
  6. Chop some cucumber slices.
  7. Begin to layer your ramekins with prawns, soft cheese, avocado mixture, and cucumber slices on top.
  8. Leave in the fridge to help them set for a good 20 minutes.
  9. Take them out and turn the ramekin upside-down onto a plate and they should come out easily.
  10. Garnish with leaves and a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce
