A Visit to Dural Christmas Tree Farm and Prawn Salad with Bread Sticks

 I've always had an artificial Christmas tree but must be amazing to have a real one!
So last week we went to Dural Christmas Tree Farm in Dural. You get to choose and hand-pick your own perfectly shaped fresh tree from the farm! So exciting!

Christmas in Australia differs dramatically from most countries around the world because it falls in the summer. An Aussie Christmas is filled with blue skies and sunshine and just isn't complete without seafood.

Crispy Chorizo and Potato Salad  
 Cherry and Almond Pavlova
Pork and Apple Sage Rib Rack
Pork Scotch with Salt Sprinkle 
Prawn Salad with Bread Sticks 
  Fresh Oysters with Soy and Mirin Sauce

olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks spring onions, chopped,
1 fennel bulb, sliced
1 bunch parsley, chopped
1 kilo large prawns
2 flat breads (I used Lebanese bread cut into strips)
2 large tomato, sliced 
1 avocado, sliced
balsamic vinegar
juice of 1 lemon
salt and pepper

* Heat olive oil in large pan and gently cook garlic, spring onions, fennel and parsley.
* Add the prawns until nice and pink and cooked through.
* Toast the bread in the oven until just golden and crunchy.
* Place the prawns on a plate and arrange tomatoes and avocados on top. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
* Arrange toasted flat bread around the dish.

My Aussie Christmas will never be complete without Pavlova.
