Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, 200°C Fan, Gas Mark 7. 
  2. Prick the potatoes several times with a fork and microwave on HIGH (900W) for 8-10 minutes, drizzle with the oil, then finish directly on a rack in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked through and the skins are crispy.
  3. Meanwhile, to prepare the salad, put the salad leaves, spring onions, red pepper, avocado and prawns into a large bowl. Season.
  4. In a small bowl or clean jam jar whisk together the oil, lemon zest and juice, mustard (if used) and half the parsley. Pour over the salad and toss gently.
  5. Cut a cross on top of each cooked potato, squeeze the sides, season, garnish with the remaining parsley and serve with the salad.
