Baked potato with sour cream and prawns

all details

Ye olde baked potatoes, and they're back, hotter and steamier than ever. The only difference is they've escaped mum's kitchen and the hot-potato stall, and are turning up on fine-dining menus, hipster cafes and even ''healthy fast food'' franchises. Inspired by the classic Maine lobster roll, I've swapped the roll for a baked spud and the lobster mayo for prawns in sour cream. Poach or steam raw green prawns yourself, or buy cooked prawns from the fishmonger.

Ingredients

4 large baking potatoes (such as sebago)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sea salt

12 tiger prawns, cooked and peeled

3 tbsp sour cream

2 tbsp good mayonnaise

1 tbsp dijon mustard

1 tbsp lemon juice

½ tsp paprika

1 tsp castor sugar

sea salt and cracked black pepper

2 tbsp snipped chives

1 tbsp dill fronds

 

Method

1. Heat oven to 200C. Scrub the potatoes and towel dry. Prick the skin lightly, coat in olive oil, and roll in sea salt. Bake directly on the rack in the centre of the oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until tender.

2. Beat the sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, paprika, sugar, sea salt and pepper together, and add a dash of water if too thick. Cut the prawns into chunks if large.

3. Cut a shallow lengthwise wedge from the side of each potato, season the potato flesh and break it up with a fork. Lightly toss the prawns, chives and dill in the sour cream, pile on top of each potato and serve.
