  • 300g raw tiger prawns, peeled
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and very thinly diced
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 2 vine-ripened tomatoes, quartered, deseeded and very finely chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp fat free natural fromage frais
  • A dash each of Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce
  • 1 level tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 4 level tbsp extra light mayonnaise

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 little gem lettuces

  1. Pat the prawns dry with kitchen paper and place in a ceramic bowl with the red chilli and garlic.
  2. Spray a non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray, add the prawn mixture and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes over a high heat or until they turn pink and are cooked through. Transfer into a bowl and leave to cool. Cover and chill for 3-4 hours or overnight if time permits
  3. Place the tomatoes into a bowl with the lime juice, fromage frais, Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces, ketchup and the mayonnaise. Add the chopped coriander and mint, season and stir until well combined. Cover and chill for up to 3-4 hours or overnight if time permits.
  4. When ready to serve, tear the lettuce leaves into small pieces. Fill the base of four cocktail glasses with the lettuce leaves and top with the crab and then the tomato mixture.
  5. Spoon the prawn mixture on top and serve garnished with a slice of lime.
