Servings 4 people


  • 500 g Frozen prawns
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 2 Fresh lime
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chervil leaves
  • Oil


  • Let the frozen prawns thaw and remove bowel if necessary, then dry them well, otherwise they will be too juicy
  • Peel the cucumber into strips, cut in half lengthways and core. Cut into halves 1/2 cm thick.
  • Wash the lime in hot water, dry it well and finely rub 2 teaspoons of the peel. Squeeze out 4 tablespoons of lime juice and mix with the lime zest, 2 tablespoons of water, a pinch of sugar, salt and pepper. Beat in the oil with a whisk.
  • Pluck chervil leaves and finely chop. Pat the prawns dry again and mix with the cucumber, chervil and vinaigrette. Toast goes well with it. I wish you all, Duchesse_Alex
