Prawn cocktail with lime aïoli

We've given the traditional 70's prawn cocktail a modern twist by using baby rocket leaves rather than iceberg lettuce and accompanying it with­ a light and zesty garlic and lime aïoli.
Prawn cocktail with lime aïoli


Lime aïoli


1.For lime aïoli, combine ingredients in a small bowl.
2.Shell and devein prawns, leaving tails intact.
3.Place prawns in large bowl with rocket; toss gently to combine.
4.Divide prawn salad among serving dishes; spoon aïoli evenly on top.

You can make the aïoli early on the day you intend to serve it and refrigerate, covered. Similarly, if you shell and devein the prawns and store them in a small glass bowl, covered, in the refrigerator early on the day, then it’s just a simple matter of tossing them with the rocket and dolloping on the aioli at mealtime.
