Wash and roughly chop the lettuce leaves and cut the cherry tomatoes in halves.

Stir the king prawns into the seafood sauce, leaving 2 king prawns to one side to garnish on the top.

Add the chopped lettuce leaves and 3 halves of the cherry tomatoes into a serving dish. They can be mixed randomly.

Now spoon over the king prawns in the seafood sauce and add the half cherry tomato, 2 king prawns and fresh sprig of dill and crack a little black pepper over the top.

Serve with a lemon wedge on the side.
