Retro prawn salad
Who doesn’t love an old fashioned prawn salad? You can buy aioli and mayonnaise at your local supermarket and frozen prawns are much more affordable these days.
- Melt butter over a medium heat, add chopped garlic and saute for 1 minute.
- Add prawns (tails on and defrosted), lemon pepper and celery salt. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, remove from heat and cool in a bowl on the bench.
- Add good quality mayonnaise, aioli and telegraph cucumber, chopped and with skin on to prawns. Chill for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Serve with cos lettuce and chopped avocado. Garnish with finely chopped spring onion and a lemon wedge.
Cook's tip: Take care not to overdo the prawns – they need very little cooking.
