I made a Low Fat Portobello Mushroom Soup for lunch and thought I should also make some open sandwiches with that freshly baked rye loaf that I bought. This Spicy Prawn and Avocado Sandwich is really easy to assemble with minimal cooking required. I chose to quickly blanch the prawns in boiling water just to keep this all healthy. Alternatively, you can stir fry them with some olive oil or even grill them to give them a light smoky aroma. Then it’s all about spicing up that avocado and using it as a spread. Enjoy!
