  • 2 ripe avocados

  • 125 grams shelled prawns

  • 100 ml mayonnaise

  • juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry

  • Salt to taste

avocado and prawn cocktail 


  1. Shell and de-vein the prawns. Season the prawns with the dry sherry, salt and pepper to taste. Allow to marinate for 10-15 minutes. Prepare the mayonnaise-refer to recipe index or buy ready made.

  2. In a frying pan over medium high heat, put 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter. Stir fry the prawns until just cooked. Remove from pan and place over kitchen paper to drain surplus oil and butter.

  3. Remove the avocado flesh and mash gently. Add the juice from 1 lemon and mix well in, to prevent the avocado mash from turning brown. Mix in the mayonnaise. Keep 1 cooked prawn whole for each serve. Quarter the remaining prawns and add to the avocado / mayonnaise mixture. Mix well without mashing the prawns.

  4. Serve the avocado / prawn mixture onto serving plates. Top each serve with one prawn each.

  5. Enjoy. Delightful as an entrée.
