Spiralizer Week: Day Three: Avocado-Basil Zucchini Noodles with Chilli-Lime Prawns and Corn

Wow, what a mouthful. In both senses! I really liked the cold sauce for this dish. It was interesting how it affected the texture of the zucchini noodles. The prawns were OK, but not that great; I think I'd rather serve this with some jerk chicken or fried fish. The corn was luscious, and I liked how its heat softened the zucchini noodles just a tad. For some reason, this is the only dish in months that has provoked my lovely SO to spontaneously exclaim how much he liked it. So -- a win!


  • juice of one lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 ripe avocado, skinned and stone removed
  • 1/4 cup yoghurt
  • 12 basil leaves
  • 1/2 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 corn on the cob
  • 2-3 zucchinis, spiralized into noodles
  • seasoned, barbecued fish or chicken, to serve


Whiz the lime juice, salt, pepper, avocado, yoghurt, basil and garlic together in a blender. Barbecue or grill the corn until golden and tender. Cut the kernels from the corn and then mix with the sauce and zucchini noodles. Would serve really well with some freshly barbecued chicken or fish.
