Prawns with Wasabi Lemon Mayonnaise
Wasabi Caviar and Red Caviar *
Show: Dec 5th
1 pound Prawns, medium size
Cook prawns in plain water or for much tastier ones add sliced celery, carrots, onion, lemon, bay leaf and 1 tsp peppercorn to the water.
*To cook prawns:
Insert a wooden skewer through the long end of the body. This keeps the prawns straight and not curling. Place prawns in pot of hot stock, bring to a boil and reduce heat, cook at a simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from pot and plunge in cold water.
**To prepare the mayonnaise:
Dilute 1/2 tsp wasabi powder with 1 Tbsp lemon juice, add the zest and 1/2 cup mayonnaise, mix thoroughly.
Run a knife down the back of each prawn, cutting 3/4 of the way through, spread the prawn out to butterfly and cleaning any veins. Lay the butter flied prawns on a platter and pipe in the mayonnaise mixture. Decorate each prawn with Wasabi Caviar* (green) and Flying Fish Roe* (red) and a chive or green onion garnish for a festive treat.
*Wasabi Green Caviar and the Flying Fish (red) Caviar are both available through Tsar Nicoulai Caviar, Inc at 1-800-CAVIAR (1-800-952-2842)
