Garlic prawn baguettes

Feel like having a picnic? Crusty rolls filled with fresh basil, mustardy rocket and fresh plump, pink prawns are guaranteed to please.

Preparation Time 25 minutes

Ingredients (serves 6)
* 2 x 60cm sesame seed baguettes (French breadsticks)
* Butter, to spread
* 1 x 120g pkt baby rocket leaves
* 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
* 600g large cooked prawns, peeled, deveined
* 1 lime, halved
* 125ml (1/2 cup) Cafe Dip aioli with lime

1. Cut the baguettes into 3 even portions. Make a lengthways cut in the side of each baguette (do not cut all the way through). Spread the inside of each baguette with butter.
2. Divide the rocket, basil and prawns among the baguettes. Use kitchen string to tie at 3cm intervals to secure filling.
3. Squeeze the lime evenly over the baguettes. Drizzle over the aioli to serve.

Notes & tips
* Make this recipe to the end of step 2 up to 1 hour ahead. To transport, wrap baguettes in plastic wrap or non-stick baking paper and place in an airtight container. Store in an esky. Continue from step 3 at the picnic.
