Prawn Mayonnaise Wrapped in Smoked Salmon

Smoked salmon wrapped prawns is a lazy dinner party starter. Dinner parties should be spent with guests and this starter is quick, simple and can be prepared in advance or assembled in seconds before serving.

Let's get prepared ...

First, make the mayonnaise - two egg yolks, whisk until lighter and fluffy and then gradually add avocado oil (or extra virgin olive oil) in constantly whisking. You will get a feel for how much oil you need, but the exact ratio does not really matter.

Defrosted some frozen cooked prawns and once defrosed, combine into the mayonnaise and optionally add a spoon of creme fraiche.

Cut some thin lemon slices and cut mostly across the diameter so that a twist will be held by one side of the slice.

Put the lot into the fridge.

When ready to serve, take slices of smoked salmon, spoon a portion of the prawn mayonnaise onto the smoked salmon and roll up.

Garnish with a twist of freshly milled black pepper or some chopped dill and lay a lemon slice over the top.
