Lemon Myrtle Mayo Sandwich with Prawns - Tom Walton

Chicken mayo sandwiches and fresh prawns just screams care-free summer days.

Tom has used dried lemon myrtle in the mayonnaise for these dishes, which works so well offering its herbaceous, fresh lemony flavour to really give you another dimension of flavour without the acid, so you can still add things like lemon juice or a vinegar.

Recipes below, happy cooking.
