To go back to a normal and healthy diet after the Christmas revelries there is time. I will start my detox, for sure, but I need a week to chill out and realize that I am back to routine. So, an indulgent starter to make the return easier.
Relax, take your time, the New Year has just started!

(For 4 people)
12 Fresh King Prawns
2 egg yolks
A pint of oil
Lemon juice
A dash of Vodka

Bring water to the boil and cook the king prawns for ten minutes. When ready, drain them and leave it to cool. In the meantime let’s make the pink sauce. Now, you can choose to buy an already made mayo of your choice or can make one at home. If you decide to make it at home it’s even better and you’ll be surprised how easy it is.
Whisk the yolks with an electric whisk, add the salt and gradually the oil until the mixture is soft and firm. Beat in the lemon juice beating costantly.
When the mayo is ready add a bit of ketchup to make the pink sauce and a dash of vodka to give it a unique twist.
Use your fantasy to find always different ways to serve this easy and tasty appetizer, like using a lettuce leaf as bed or just pouring the pink sauce over the king prawns.
