starter with shrimp and avocado

A nice starter: mix some shrimp with home-made mayonaise, worcester sauce, a dash of tabasco, a little cream and a squeeze of lemon juice and put them on a plate. Side it with pre-cooked lentils (lentilles de Puy), to which you add a little vinaigrette. Cut an avocado in half, put it cut-side down on a cutting board and make slits with a knife from the bottom just to 1 inch below the top [be careful not to slice it all the way through]. Pushing it lightly with your hand makes it fan out into a nice shape on the plate. Add freshly torn rocket to the side. This is a very delightful salad to start off a meal, for example some pasta affair!
