Method

  1. In a large bowl, mix dressing ingredients until blended. Season with salt, then set aside.
  2. To serve, halve and stone the avocados. Dice the flesh while it’s still in the skin then scoop into a bowl. Add the prawns and toss in the dressing. Line six small serving bowls or tumblers with two or three chicory leaves. Pile in avocado and prawn mixture. Top with watercress and lime wedges. Serve with prawn crackers.

This is really lovely. I added a big handful of salad to bulk it up for a lunch dish. The dressing is very simple and tastes fabulous!

Lovely dressing (surprisingly) not too hot - Try a lighter version with half the oil and double the lime juice but add a little extra honey to taste to achieve a sweet sour balance.
