Retro Prawn Cocktail

StarterServes 4


# Wash the little gem salad leaves and pat dry on a clean cloth. # Finely shred with a knife and place in the bottom of four martini glasses.


# You will need a large bowl and a whisk. Place the wholegrain mustard and vinegar in the bowl with the lime zest, juice and honey. # Mix in the chopped shallot. # Add the olive oil slowly mixing all the time. # Add the vegetable oil in the same way, then add the chopped coriander leaves. # Check if any salt or pepper is needed. # Place on one side for later use.


# Place the cooked tiger prawns, cooked crayfish and the crab meat from the dressed crabs in a bowl and bind with some of the vinaigrette. # Peel the avocados and dice into cubes, add to the mix. # Spoon into the four martini glasses and serve with the cherry tomatoes sliced on the side, some sprigs of coriander and slices of limes.
