Avo and Prawn Parcels

Peel and cube one avocado, add to the prawn meat and season. Mix in the mayonnaise to form the filling, add mayo a little at a time to reach your desired consistency.

Peel the second ripe avocado and remove the pip. One avocado should be sufficient for four servings, use ¼ for each plate.

Slice the ¼ avos into 1 mm slices lengthways, keep the slices together and place onto a sheet of plastic wrap; gently fan the slices out.

Place a generous spoonful of prawn filling in centre. Bring the sides of wrap together to form a ball-shaped parcel. Repeat and make 4 parcels.

Mix all of the ingredients together and dress with the prepared dressing.

To assemble the salad, unwrap the parcels and place in the centre of the serving plate. Scatter the dressed salad leaves around the parcels. Dot with cubes of apple and cucumber, sprinkle chopped walnuts and serve.
