This is a great recipe, one that I love to make when we have friends over for dinner. It is easy to make, and the colors and flavor are irresistible… nobody will ever believe that you had these beauties ready in 10 minutes or less.


  • 2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and diced
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 12 prawns, cooked
  • 1 tbsp. Chives, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. of cilantro, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Ground cumin to taste
  • Maldon Sea Salt to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil


Toss the avocado in a bowl; add the onion, chives, parsley and cilantro.

Peel and chop the prawns, setting aside a few to decorate the plates. Incorporate to the bowl.

In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with mustard, cumin and oil. Add this mixture to the bowl with the avocado and stir well. Add salt to taste.IMGP4327
