  • Easy

It's your classic prawn cocktail with a twist. Pass them around your Christmas do and watch as everyone tucks in with glee.



  • avocados 2, cut in half and stoned
  • rye bread a small loaf (about 8 slices), sliced and toasted
  • cooked crayfish tails 2 x 120g packs, (or cooked atlantic prawns, if you can't find crayfish)
  • mayonnaise 3 tbsp
  • yuzu juice 2 tbsp
  • fresh dill 1-2 tbsp, roughly chopped


  • Step 1

    Carefully scoop out the avocado halves with a spoon keeping them whole and put them flat-side down on a chopping board. Thinly slice the avocado lengthways and fan the slices across the rye bread toasts so that the bread is completely covered.

  • Step 2

    Roughly chop the crayfish tails and mix with the mayonnaise, a pinch of salt and the yuzu juice. Spoon over the toasts, leaving some of the avocado exposed, and sprinkle over the fresh dill.

  • Step 3

    Neatly slice each toast into quarters (bite-size) pieces.
