Prawn Rolls

This delicious dish is a modern take on the traditional New England Lobster Rolls, using prawns which is easier, faster and cheaper to prepare. Prawns are poached in butter and garlic and then combined into a sauce using aioli, chives, mustard powder and lemon juice. Served in toasted split top brioche buns with some lettuce and plain potato chips served on the side. It’s the perfect dish for a summer lunch or picnic! Makes 6 rolls and is great as a starter/ side dish or even just enjoyed on it’s own!
