Don’t dismiss this very simple starter. Prawns are wonderful served on good, fresh bread with a home-made Mayonnaise.


  • 6 ozs (170 g) freshly cooked prawns or shrimps
  • 4–8 leaves


Put a slice of buttered bread on a plate, arrange 1 or 2 lettuce leaves on top and place 5–6 fat, freshly cooked prawns on the lettuce. Pipe a coil of home-made Mayonnaise on the prawns. Garnish with lemon wedges and sprigs of watercress, flat parsley, fennel or garden cress.
