  1. Mash the avocados, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, and parsley together in a bowl. Set aside.

Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir the prawns over medium heat until they begin to change color. Reduce heat to low.

It's really good but a lot of avocado. I used half the recommended amount and I put it over pasta and it was great.

I made this recipe for my family along with stuffed mushrooms. The mushrooms were a hit but no one liked the prawns. Unfortunately, I will not be making this recipe again.
