Modern Prawn Cocktail with Frozen Yogurt

This modern prawn cocktail hides a delicious secret: a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt at its heart. The cool, sweet froyo offsets the chili heat in the sauce covering the prawns. The base of the cocktail are a few rocket leaves, and its garnished as you wish: we've gone for a cooked, shell-on prawn and finely diced avocado.
