1 head broccoli, cut into florets
250g edamame beans 
1 iceberg lettuce, cut into wedges
2 avocadoes, cut into wedges
20 cooked prawns
3 hard boiled eggs, cut into wedges

1/3 cup good quality mayonaise 
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1/2 tsp chilli oil (optional)
sea salt (optional)


Bring a pot of water to boil and drop in broccoli and edamame beans. Boil for 2 minutes then drain, refresh under cold running water and allow to cool. Layer lettuce, broccoli, beans, avocados, prawns and eggs onto 4 serving plates. Whisk mayonnaise, water and sesame oil together and drizzle over salad plates. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. (Chiili oil and sea salt optional - personally I'd go for the chilli oil every time!) Serves 4
