King Prawn Taco Lettuce Wraps

These guilt free tacos are a delicious alternative to their more calorific counterparts. The raw onions are packed with flavonoids which help promote heart health, while the tomatoes are rich in another antioxidant, lycopene. The king prawns are a great source of protein and omega-3 polyunsaturated fats.

80 g Black beans
