The festive season has traditionally been a time to overindulge but it needn’t be that way. You can make it just a little healthier without losing any of the festive feel with fresh and healthy summer party food ideas like BBQ Prawns and Aioli.
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 egg yolks
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
¾ cup olive oil
12 medium green tiger prawns in shell
Lemon wedges to serve
In a small food processor, pulse garlic, yolks, lemon juice and mustard together. With the motor running, gradually add oil in a slow steady stream. Season aioli with salt and pepper and thin with a little warm water if required.
Warm a grill plate or barbecue over high heat. Grill prawns for 2 minutes each side or until bright orange and cooked through. Serve prawns whole. Peel and dip in aioli.
Store aioli in a screw top jar in the fridge for 48 hours.
