  • 1 white onion
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic

  • salt ‘n pepper to taste


Mojo de Ajo:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 150 oC. Remove the papery skins from each clove of garlic, chop roughly.
  2. Pour a good drizzle of olive oil into a baking tray and add the garlic.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes or until the garlic starts to turn a light golden brown (the house will smell amazing) but be careful to not over-bake the garlic as this will make it taste bitter.
  4. At the 15 minute mark add the citrus juice, chilli flakes and salt and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes cooking time.

Once the Mojo de Ajo is done, remove from the oven and leave to cool before pouring into a jar. The Mojo de Ajo will keep well in sealed jar for around 3 months.

  3. Sauté together for a few minutes until the prawns turn pink. Take off the heat.
  4. In another pan (also super hot) place your tortilla.
  5. After about 10 seconds flip it and wait to see the tortilla start to puff up, this means it’s ready.

    1. Apply a good smear of Collective Straight Up spicy avo cream down the tortilla.
    2. Add 5 cooked prawns.
