  • Our prawn tacos with grilled fish take leftover cooked prawns and fish and transform them into a spicy, Cajun-like filler for fresh and zesty tacos. Prawn tacos are the perfect thing to serve to a crowd of friends. Why not let everyone build their own tacos so they can adapt the filling to their own personal preference. Prawn tacos with grilled fish are a simple dish full of bright and bold flavours.
