“These warm buttered buns, filled with crunchy lettuce and radishes, are topped with delicate prawns mixed with smooth lemony mayonnaise.”

When I’m slightly intoxicated, following a jolly happy hour with coworkers for example, I tend to pay little to no attention to my fat intake. This is made very clear in my choice of food following such occasions, like the recipe I’m sharing with you today.

Inebriety is, of course, not the only state you should be in when making these prawn rolls, but it is the perfect recipe for it. Not only is it easy to whisk up with reduced faculties, requiring little prepping and cooking, but your muted conscience won’t deny you the extra cheekiness you are craving. A little bit more fat won’t hurt you once in a while.

Mayonnaise and butter should not be used with a light hand here. And, it is definitely best served with a large side of your favorite crisps, or chips, or however you want to call it ;). They are made of potatoes, right? So that’s our veggie portion sorted, thank you drunk consciousness.

These warm buttered buns, filled with crunchy lettuce and radishes, are topped with delicate prawns mixed with smooth lemony mayonnaise. Such a delightful combination, and perfect to soak up some of the excess alcohol.

Only one *Golden rule*: Do not skimp on the butter – it’s the secret ingredient of this simple sandwich.
