Tomato chilli mayonnaise



1.Combine onion and 1 tsp sea salt in a bowl and mix well, then leave for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, for tomato chilli mayonnaise, process egg yolk and mustard in a small food processor until combined, then, with motor running, add olive oil in a steady stream until thick and emulsified. Add tomato, lemon juice and chilli and process until smooth and combined. Transfer mixture to a small bowl and season to taste.
2.Rinse red onion under cold water, then drain and pat dry on absorbent paper. Combine onion and vinegar in a bowl, season to taste with freshly ground black pepper and mix well.
3.Cut bread in half horizontally and fill each piece with 3 lettuce leaves and 5 prawns. Top with a little marinated onion, drizzle with tomato chilli mayonnaise and season to taste with a little freshly ground black pepper.
