Spiced Prawns, Pawpaw and Curry Mayonnaise


Just returned from travels in Spain and I was reminded of the lovely fresh salads and seafood combinations that I just don't take advantage of enough!

Here's a lovely combination of salad, fruit and seafood which I hope you'll love!


Spiced Prawns, Pawpaw and Curry Mayonnaise




Ingredients

1/2 lemon, sliced
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 cups of water
375g green prawns in the shell
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon honey
3/4 cup good quality mayonnaise
About 3 cups shredded lettuce
1 small, ripe paw paw, peeled, seeded and sliced

In saucepan, combine first 3 ingredients with water.  Heat until boiling, then simmer 1 minute.

Add prawns and cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes.  Drain and cool.  Peel prawns, halve lengthwise, and discard the veins.

In a small bowl, whisk together curry powder, water, cider vinegar and honey until honey dissolves.  Whisk in mayonnaise.

To serve, arrange lettuce or greens, the prawns and pawpaw on chilled plates.  Dollop with mayonnaise mixture to taste.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
