Avocado and Prawn Crostini

By Georgia Barnes

Serves 6

1 French baguette, sliced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup whole egg mayonnaise
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp cornichons, finely chopped [extra to serve]
1 tbsp baby capers, finely chopped
1 avocado, sliced
1/4 iceberg lettuce, finely shredded
300g cooked king prawns, peeled and halved
Micro parsley

Preheat oven to 180oC. Place sliced baguette onto a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven to toast for 5-6 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven. Rub baguette slices with the garlic clove. Set aside.

To make the tartare sauce, mix together mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, cornichons and baby capers in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To construct crostini, place a dollop of tartare sauce on each piece of baguette. Top with avocado, shredded lettuce and prawns. Garnish with additional cornichons and micro parsley.
