⁣A bed of torn Romaine lettuce leaves is topped with quartered fresh pink grapefruit slices, sliced avocado and prawns.

Ingredients

  • ⁣300g prawns, thawed (240g after thawing)
  • 4 Romaine lettuce leaves, torn (80g)
  • 1 pink grapefruit, zest and pith removed (220g)
  • 1 avocado, peeled and chopped (140g)
  • 40g half fat creme fraiche
  • zest of 1 lemon, and 1tsp lemon juice
  • 15mls water
  • cracked black pepper

Method

⁣To make the dressing, combine the creme fraiche with half the lemon zest and the tsp of lemon juice, then stir in the water. Season to taste with cracked black pepper.
Divide the torn lettuce leaves between 4 cocktail glasses. Slice the grapefruit and cut each slice into quarters, then place around the sides of the glasses.
Pile the prawns and avocado on to the lettuce, then drizzle with the dressing. Finish with the remaining zest. Serve
