Bite-size pieces of romaine lettuce are filled with a spoonful of Creme Fraiche and sweet chili sauce, then topped with a large shrimp.

  • Servings: 6


1 Tbsp Sweet Chili Sauce
4½ oz Crã¨me Fraã®che or Sour Cream
4 Romaine Hearts, leaves washed and patted dry
24 Large Prawns or Langoustine, cooked and peeled
Slivers of Tomato & Fresh Herbs, for garnish


Mix the sweet chili sauce and crème fraîche (or sour cream) together, tasting and adding a little more sauce, if necessary. Chill in the fridge. Trim the romaine leaves into large bite-sized pieces. Place a teaspoon of the crème fraîche mixture in the center of each leaf and set a prawn on top of that. Arrange on a platter and decorate with tomato and herbs.
