Ingredients

  • 20 peeled and cooked king prawns (about 200g)
  • zest and juice ½ lemon
  • ½ tsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 cucumber

Method

  1. Mix the prawns, lemon zest and juice, poppy seeds and oil in a bowl, and leave to marinate for 10-20 mins while you prepare the cucumber.

  2. Peel 20 strips from the cucumber, running the peeler down the full length. Stop and turn the cucumber when the peelings get a bit too seedy.

  3. Thread each cucumber strip onto a small wooden skewer, bending back and forth to create ruffles. Add a prawn to each and put in the fridge to chill until the party.
