This is a recipe that my husband & I came up with.We love coconut prawns so we decided to try them in a soft taco....oh my, these are good and a favorite of ours! The amount of oil and prawns depend on how many taco's you want to make. We usually fit 3 fairly large(31/40 size) prawns in each taco. The sauce is killer good :)

  1. In a small bowl, mix the sour cream, lime juice and equal or sugar. Stir and adjust taste to your liking. (Some like more lime while some prefer it to be sweeter.).
  2. Heat oil (medium heat) in frying pan. Clean/shell prawns.
  3. Dip prawns in flour followed by egg then into coconut. Fry till golden brown, drain on paper towel and keep warm till all prawns are cooked.
  4. Warm tortillas, then put some of the lime sauce on the tortilla, add 3-4 prawns and the shredded cabbage. Roll up and enjoy!
  5. These are really good the next day cold for a snack!
