Peel the prawns and remove the heads. Season the bodies and fry in the oil. (The heads can be used to make the stock).

Peel the avocados, remove the pits and crush the flesh with the chopped spring onion, the peeled and finely chopped garlic, the olive oil and the cream to form a velvety smooth purée. Season to taste.

Place shredded lettuce in the base of a cocktail dish (optional) then add alternate layers of prawns and avocado purée. Refrigerate until serving.

"I made this for my mother's Bridge group last month. There were some ladies who didn't like avocado, but when they tasted this, just to be nice, they ended up loving it and one asked for the recipe!"
