So when I was going to Coogee Carols recently I thought this would be the perfect thing to take. The carols were great, the fireworks spectacular and my Prawn Rolls just lovely to eat out by the sea.
Now also with Christmas gone and New Year approaching, summer in Sydney at this time of the year, there is always an abundance of prawns, these rolls are great to make with any prawns you have that are leftover. You get to spruce up the prawns where you can enjoy them the next day to.
Now the recipe states to toss the prawns in the mayonnaise, but if you like to see the orange of the prawn as pictured above, just place the prawns on the roll and drizzle over the mayonnaise.
I have mentioned before my favourite mayonnaise is the Thomy brand, it is not sweet like the others and I much prefer the flavour.
1/2 cup (150g) whole egg mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped chives
2-3 drops Tabasco
Sea salt and cracked black pepper
8 cooked medium prawns, peeled
4 soft white bread rolls
Watercress or butter lettuce leaves, to serve
Place the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, chives, tabasco, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
Add the prawns, toss to combine.
Split the rolls in half, but not all the way through.
Add 4 prawns with some mayonnaise mixture to each roll. Top with watercress or green salad leaves to serve.
