HOW TO MAKE PRAWN MOUSSE WITH ORANGE AND WATERCRESS SALAD

Ingredients

  • 700g raw large prawns (shelled weight)
  • 5 large free-range egg whites
  • Tabasco sauce
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 300ml double cream
  • brown shrimps, to serve
  • lemon wedges, to serve
  • orange segments, to serve
  • watercress, to serve
  • You will need
  • :
  • 6 buttered ramekin dishes or timbale moulds

Method

  • Put the prawns into a food processor and pulse to a purée, then add the egg whites, a good few shakes of Tabasco sauce, the lemon juice and a good pinch of sea salt. Put into a bowl, cover and chill in the fridge for at least an hour. Overnight is fine.

  • Stir in the cream. Divide between the dishes and cover each one with a buttered circle of baking parchment.

  • Heat the oven to 150C, gas 2. Put the dishes into a roasting tin and pour in enough hot water to come two-thirds of the way up the dishes. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the parchment paper and invert on to a large plate. Cool, then put in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight. To serve, top with the shrimps and serve the salad on the side.
