Retro Food Recipe - circa 1968

As I am a HUGE fan of food and yes, I am living in a previous era, I thought I would share a recipe that falls within the diet, even on your "Days On".


Avocados with Prawns Recipe


3 Ripe Avocados 1 1/2 oz (45g) Small Cooked & Peeled Prawns or White Crab Meat Lemon Juice Salt & Pepper For the sauce: 1 tsp Lemon Juice 2 tbsp Olive Oil 1/4 tsp Dijon Mustard Pinch of Salt Pinch of Pepper

3 tbsp Red Tomato Chutney 1 tsp Tabasco Sauce


Halve the Avocados and place on six individual serving plates. Squeeze a dash of Lemon Juice over each one and sprinkle with freshly grounded Salt & Pepper. Set aside.

For the sauce: Put the Lemon Juice, Dijon Mustard and Salt into a bowl and beat together until the Salt has dissolved. Slowly pour in the Olive Oil, continually beating. Add the Pepper. Add the Red Tomato Chutney. Add the Tabasco Sauce. Beat a little more until thoroughly mixed.

To this mixture now add the Prawns or Crab. Combine well. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

Spoon a serving of this mixture into each Avocado.

Serves 6 as a Starter.


Well, I say eat two on a bed of lettuce and that's no starter, that's dinner! Believe me, it will be very filling and the combination of avacado and seafood is devine!
