Chef's note

Not for the first time, when I made this, I didn't read the recipe properly and didn't realise that the accompanying vegetables were to be consumed with the prawns, so cut the celery lazily, and as I had no carrots, omitted them and increased parsley and celery leaves to compensate. It was very nice, even so.

When making it again, I would use the largest seafood that you can find or you'll spend most of the time peeling, rather than eating. Nice though, and the leftover dressing went well with a few more salads.
