You are going to present your wife with a home cooked 3 course meal. The first course is Entree. You are going to make a Prawn cocktail. You will require;
• 12 large cooked prawns, peeled with tails on
• 2 lemon wedges
• 6 lettuce leaves
• Seafood sauce
• 1 tomato diced
• ¼ cucumber diced
Place the lettuce into 2 small bowels; put the prawns into the bowls with the tails hanging over the edge. Mix the tomato and cucumber and put into the middle of the bowl.
Place a wedge of lemon into each bowel.
Put the sauce into two separate sauce bowels and serve separate.
You can place this in the fridge and it is ready to go.
15 – 20 minutes after entree is served you will be ready to serve main course. The main course you will be serving is Avocado and Prosciutto wrapped Chicken Breast. Sounds good doesn’t it, and it’s easy to cook too! You will require;
• 2 Chicken breasts
• 4 pieces prosciutto
• ½ Avocado
• 4 pieces broccolini
• 12 baby carrots
A white sauce is lovely served with this dish, if you want to buy a packaged one they are available, and if you 3want to make your own this is how. You will need;
• 600ml milk
• 2 tbspn butter
• 2 tbspn plain flour or cornflour
• 1 cup chopped parsley
First you will cook the chicken breast in the oven for 20 minutes.
Then take the breast out and wrap 2 pieces of prosciutto around each breast.
Put back into the oven for 10 minutes.
Steam the broccolini and baby carrots until cooked firm.
Slice the avocado.
Place the chicken breast onto the plate and the sliced avocado leaning against the chicken.
The broccolini and carrots go on the other side of the chicken.
To make the sauce, heat most of the milk and butter.
Use the remainder milk to mix about 3-4 tbspn flour into a paste.
Whisk or use a fork to remove any lumps.
When the milk is hot, but not boiling, pour the paste in and stir continuously.
Season with salt, pepper and parsley. Have the white sauce in a separate serving dish to pour on yourselves.
About ½ an hour after main course is an appropriate time serve dessert. Your dessert is called Berrylicious. You will need;
• 600ml pre made custard
• 2 cups mixed berries (using frozen is ok)
• 4 strawberries
• 300ml thick cream

Then place berries on top of custard to almost full.
Whisk the cream so it’s really thick and put on top of berries.
Flake chocolate on top of cream then add the strawberries on top.
This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until dessert time.
