Cold Marinated Prawns

As part of my 18 weeks of firsts, I cooked a small party last night - something I have always wanted to do - and the food was a huge hit!

 Pictured above:

Crispy Latkes Bites with Smoked Salmon and Lemon Dill Creme Fraiche
Twice Baked Lobster and Truffle Baby Potatoes
Twice Baked Cheddar and Bacon Baby Potatoes (recipe on the same link as the truffle potatoes)
Summer Crab Salad Rolls
Sweet and Savoury Turkey Meatballs with Mango Chutney
Confetti Cornbread Muffins with Chili Philly Icing
Cheesy Philly Garlic Loaf

And the following recipe for cold marinated prawns - a brand new recipe that is extremely easy and just delicious!

I hope you enjoy!
