Marinated Prawns with Tarragon Mayonaise


Marinated Prawns with
Tarragon Mayonnaise

2 lbs. medium prawns, shelled and deveined
juice of 1 orange
juice of 2 lemons
juice of 3 limes
1/2 to 1 cup olive oil
1 onion, sliced thinly
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tblsp. mustard
2 Tblsp. finely chopped fresh tarragon

Make a vinaigrette out of the citrus juices and the olive oil, adding salt and pepper to taste. You may need to add more citrus juice or oil depending on how juicy the fruits. Add the sliced onions and set aside in a large bowl. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Plunge the prawns in the boiling water and remove them when just cooked through - about 30 seconds. Place them immediately in the vinaigrette, stirring to coat all the prawns. Refrigerate overnight in the vinaigrette. To make a dipping sauce, simply combine the mayonnaise, mustard and tarragon. To serve, drain the prawns from the vinaigrette and serve on a platter with the sauce in a bowl in the center.
