deconstructing the 70’s: the prawn cocktail

Some nights you just want a light dinner – a little bit of protein and a lot of fresh taste. And you want it in 5 minutes from now. Enter the prawn cocktail – but not all fiddle-fussy like you know it. This is the prawn cocktail 2010’s style. Deconstructed. Chunky. Real.

A wedge of lettuce (either iceberg or ½ a baby cos)
Avocado, sliced chunky
Prawns, peeled, with tails on
a sprinkle of chives

2 tbsp whole egg mayonnaise
½ lemon, juiced
pinch of caster sugar

Whisk dressing to combine and drizzle over the above.

* For a more traditional dressing, add ½ tbsp tomato sauce.
