1 C (250 ml) sour cream

juice and zest of 2 lemons

3 Tbsp (45 ml) extra virgin olive oil

a handful of fresh chives, chopped

salt and milled black pepper to taste



500 g wholewheat linguini, cooked al dente and rinsed with cold water

400 g ready-cooked prawn tails, defrosted in cold water, then drained

2 ripe but firm avocados, peeled, pip removed and cut into bite-size cubes


Mix the dressing ingredients together, reserving a little of the lemon zest for garnishing.

Pour the dressing over the cooked pasta and mix until well combined. Add the prawn tails and cubed avocado and gently mix through.

Serve immediately, sprinkled with salt, plenty of black pepper and the remaining lemon zest.



To ring the changes, replace the prawns with 200 g chopped smoked salmon.

Add julienned strips of cucumber together with the prawns and avocado.
