About this recipe

I don’t just dice my avocado! Try my twist on a seventies classic Prawn cocktail salad. The simple flavours of a prawn cocktail salad marry so well together but take your salad to another level and serve it with a creamy avocado dip and a sprinkle of sumac. Chunky avocado dip is also delicious with fresh prawns. 



Main Ingredients

  • 10 small cos /iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber
  • 20 cooked large king prawns, peeled leaving tails intact
  • sumac
  • lemon wedges to serve

Creamy Avocado Dip

  • 2 avocados
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4-6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt to season

Notes from Rouba

Cooked prawns can be kept in the fridge for up to three days from the purchase date.

You can freeze cooked prawns for up to three months.

If your prawns are slimy or going grey, this is a sign that they’re too old, please don’t eat them. 

What is the nutritional value of prawns 


Step 1.

Make the avocado dip sauce by adding all ingredients to a bowl. Using a hand blender, blend until creamy and smooth. Taste and season if needed. You may need to add some more lemon. Squeeze over some more lemon juice to prevent oxidisation. Cover the sauce and refrigerate.

Step 2.

Peel and devein the prawns. I love leaving the tails intact, rather than completely peeling them off. 

Dice the cucumber into small pieces (2-3 cm). Shred the lettuce leaving four leaves as a whole.  


Step 3.

Line each serving glass with 1 whole lettuce leaf. Divide shredded lettuce amongst the bowls and sprinkle over the diced cucumber. Place a generous spoon of avocado dip sauce on the side of the bowl. Top with the prawns. sprinkle over the sumac and serve with lemon wedges.

This post is meant to be a recipe, but I can’t ignore what’s been happening 👉🏽👉🏽The last seven months have been incredibly challenging, watching thousands of innocent Palestinians being slaughtered in the name of self-defence 💔 It’s an excuse to ethnically cleanse the indigenous people of the land. But what I’ve seen in the last 24 hours has absolutely shattered me 😞

Families were told to move for their safety, only to be burnt alive. I forced myself to watch videos of beheaded babies—images that will never leave my mind. The destruction, the horrific scenes, and the screams are etched in our hearts and minds💔

And yet, our government responds with a mere, “It’s concerning.” Our tax money has contributed to the slaughter of these innocent people; our tax money has contributed to funding this genocide. 

I feel heartbroken and helpless. How can the world just watch? How can anyone say, “I’m staying out of this”?

I’m not ok. Are you?
With so many new followers here, today feels like the right time to reintroduce myself, as it also marks the 76th anniversary of the Nakba—a day of remembrance for the Palestinian people, including my family🇵🇸🌟 

I’m Rouba, 40+7 years young, and I’ve been happily married for 28 years🙏🏽 Those who follow my stories know my husband is quite the character, always keeping things lively 😅 We have two wonderful sons, and my mother-in-law is truly amazing—she often features in my stories ❤️

I’m a big foodie, with a special love for hummus fatteh, ofcourse the  Lebanese 🇱🇧 version 😉 it’s my absolute favourite! I believe Middle Eastern food is the yummiest in the world. 🙌🏼 And yes, I’m proudly pro-Palestine, married to a Palestinian. 

Seventy-five years ago, my husband’s grandfather and his family were evicted from their home. This history is a significant part of our lives 💔

Thanks for joining me here, where we celebrate rich flavours, vibrant stories, and the resilience of a remarkable culture.

Welcome to my journey! FREE PALESTINE 🇵🇸

I Say NO to international women’s day - I have learned so much in the past few months, and as I sit here reflecting, I realize that International Women’s Day has never been as inclusive as I once believed. How was I convinced otherwise? Where is the support for all women? Today, I see the humiliation of Palestinian women, their trauma, their screams for lost loved ones, their search for their babies under rubble, and their lack of basic necessities like food, water and  sanitary products. 

I can no longer participate in a day that acknowledges and hears only certain women while ignoring others. International Women’s Day was supposed to be for all women – this is what I was led to believe. Yet, the reality is starkly different. 

Today, I choose to say no to International Women’s Day unless it truly includes and represents all women.
