pint of prawns

Serves 4

  • 1 free-range egg yolk

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 600 ml extra virgin olive oil

  • tomato ketchup

  • Worcestershire sauce

  • brandy

  • 2 lemons, plus extra lemon halves to serve

  • 1 red chilli

  • a few fresh parsley or thyme stalks

  • 20 big fat raw prawns, from sustainable sources, ask your fishmonger

  • 12 raw langoustines, from sustainable sources, ask your fishmonger

Make the sauce by whisking the egg yolk and mustard in a bowl, then add the oil drop by drop. After blending in a quarter of the oil, add the rest more quickly, whisking all the time. Season with sea salt, pepper, a dash each of ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brandy and a squeeze of lemon juice.



Heat a large pan of salted water and add the lemon zest (use a vegetable peeler to get big strips) and remaining juice with the chilli and the herb stalks. When the water is boiling, cook the prawns and langoustines in 3 batches for 2–3 minutes, until they turn pink, curl slightly and are cooked all the way through. Drain well and allow to cool before chilling in the fridge. Discard the chilli, lemon zest and herb stalks.



Pile the prawns and langoustines into 4 pint glasses and serve with the sauce, crusty bread and butter, lemon halves, finger bowls and pints of bitter!

Method

This is a British summer classic – genius with a pint of beer on a hot afternoon! If you've no time to make the Marie Rose sauce, buy mayo and add the flavourings.

Make the sauce by whisking the egg yolk and mustard in a bowl, then add the oil drop by drop. After blending in a quarter of the oil, add the rest more quickly, whisking all the time. Season with sea salt, pepper, a dash each of ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brandy and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Heat a large pan of salted water and add the lemon zest (use a vegetable peeler to get big strips) and remaining juice with the chilli and the herb stalks. When the water is boiling, cook the prawns and langoustines in 3 batches for 2–3 minutes, until they turn pink, curl slightly and are cooked all the way through. Drain well and allow to cool before chilling in the fridge. Discard the chilli, lemon zest and herb stalks.

Pile the prawns and langoustines into 4 pint glasses and serve with the sauce, crusty bread and butter, lemon halves, finger bowls and pints of bitter!

Nutritional Information Amount per serving:

Calories

Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day.

Carbs

Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. We all need carbs, but try to make them all wholegrain by sticking to brown bread, rice and pasta - they are much more nutritious.

Sugar

We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Most of your sugar should come from raw fruit and milk, because they give us lots of nutrients too. Always check food labels so you know how much sugar you're eating.

Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it's associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Saturates

Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Too much can be bad for our heart and cholesterol levels, but unsaturated or "good fats" in fish, nuts, avocados and some oils can help keep our hearts healthy if eaten in moderation.

Protein

Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids. When it comes to protein, try to eat leaner sources such as chicken and fish or non-meat sources such as eggs, dairy, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu and pulses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
