These Prawn and Avocado Cocktails look perfect served in tall glasses but you can make smaller versions in any dishes of your choice.

Approx 15 minutes

Makes 2 giant or 4 standard starters

Ingredients:

1 Romaine or Cos lettuce, washed and sliced

2 ripe avocados

2 limes, 1 squeezed, the other cut into wedges

Freshly ground black pepper

10cm piece cucumber, chopped

150g large cold water prawns

Few sprigs fresh coriander

1 tbs soured cream or crème fraiche

Method:

  1. Prepare the lettuce and divide between the glasses
  2. Peel and slice the avocados and squeeze over the juice from one of the limes, turning them to coat evenly to stop the avocado from going brown. Season with a little pepper
  3. Mix the cucumber with the prawns and coriander then add the avocado. Pile into the glasses and finish with a dollop of soured cream and a wedge of lime.
