    1. Make the dip: in a small bowl add mustard, egg yolk and 1 teaspoon sunflower oil. Whisk gently (do not use an electric whisk) until ingredients are well mixed. Pour in more oil gradually, about 2 to 4 tablespoons, continuing to whisk till a smooth sauce is achieved. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    2. Peel the avocado and place in the centre of a serving platter. Scatter prawns around the avocado. Pour the dip onto the avocado and serve.

    This was quite tasty! Prawn is not available in my area so I used colossal shrimp. The sauce is really good and compliments the dish nicely. I did think it lacked a little zing so I added some crushed red chili flakes and that did the trick. This is one that is sure to impress your guests.  -  05 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
