Serves 6-8

1 baby cos lettuce
200g prawns, cooked
200g smoked mussels
1 mango, chopped small
1 avocado, sliced
¼ cup chopped dill
Salt and pepper
½ cup aioli mixed
1 tsp chipotle sauce or to taste
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 limes cut in wedges

1. Arrange the cos leaves on a serving platter.

2. In a large bowl combine the prawns, mussels, mango, avocado and dill seasoning with salt and freshly ground pepper. Arrange on the lettuce.

3. In a small bowl combine the aioli, chipotle and lime juice. Drizzle over the cocktail just before serving. Place lime wedges around the edges to squeeze.
