Miguel's prawn and avocado cocktail Christmas wreath

Category: food

Turn your festive favourite prawn cocktail recipe into a classic Christmas wreath for the perfect table centrepiece this Christmas.



1. To make chipotle mayo, place chipotle chillies on a clean board. Using a large knife, gently bruise chillies until they break down. Place in the beaker of a stick blender with remaining ingredients. Insert stick blender and blend, without stopping, until thick. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Coarsely mash avocados and place in a bowl. Add chives and lime juice, then season with salt and pepper. Mix well.

3. To assemble wreath, spread ½ cup of the chipotle mayo onto the outer edge of a serving plate (approx. 30cm). Top with avocado mixture, then arrange lettuce, fennel radish, and prawns over top.

4. Garnish with micro herbs. Serve with croutons and remaining mayo.



  • Remaining chipotle mayo can be stored in the fridge for up to one week.

  • To make baguette croutons, thinly slice a baguette diagonally. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange on an oven tray lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated 180C oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Remove and cool.
