Cajun Prawns Flatbread

Sharing is caring!

White plate with freshly made flatbread loaded with salad , topped with Cajun prawns and chopped coriander

Quick and easy dinner just got REALLY TASTY! Our Cajun prawns flatbread is so easy to make, freshly toasted flatbread, topped with a zingy zesty salad and warm spicy Cajun prawns. 

This is one of my favourite quick and easy prawn recipes. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and cook and it’s great for when you’re cooking dinner for two.

I usually use shop bought flatbreads for this recipe but if you wanted to make your own then I recommend the River Cottage flatbread recipe, it’s really good and super easy to make.

Cajun Prawns Loaded Flatbread Ingredients

  • 1 little gem lettuce – shredded
  • 1/2 cucumber – sliced
  • 150g baby plum tomatoes – halved
  • 1/4 small red cabbage – shredded
  • 1 lemon – zest and juice
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 flatbreads
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 250g raw king prawns
  • 2tsp Cajun seasoning
  • handful of coriander – roughly chopped

If you don’t want to bother with preparing salad, just buy a pre-washed salad bag – go for a bistro or crunchy blend, maybe pick up a tub or two of extra salads like beetroot or three bean to add more interest.

How to make Cajun prawns flatbreads

  • Mix together the salad – toss the salad vegetables together in a bowl and sprinkle over the lemon zest.
  • Warm the flatbreads – heat a frying pan over a medium heat and warm the flatbreads as per packet instructions – once warmed place on plates.
  • Cook the Cajun prawns – heat up another frying pan over a medium high heat – add a splash of olive oil and tip in the prawns and Cajun seasoning – pan fry the prawns – stirring and turning regularly until they are piping hot throughout and entirely pink. This should take around 4-5 minutes depending on the size of the prawns.
  • Top the flatbreads – load up with salad – tip over the spicy prawns along with the juices from the pan, scatter over the chopped coriander – serve with lemon wedges.

  • Switch the Cajun spices – go for Italian seasoning or add a tsp of curry paste as you fry the prawns.
