Gently poach prawns in wine, lemon juice and peppercorns until they start to change colour. Drain and sprinkle with chives, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Place mayonnaise in a bowl, add all remaining ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate until needed. To assemble, take 1 sheet of phyllo pastry and brush liberally with butter. Cut into 6 equal squares and place them one on top of the other. Repeat with all sheets.

Place 2T of seafood mixture on top of phyllo square, gently bring the corners up around it, forming a parcel. Tie with string and place on baking tray. Repeat until all seafood has been used. Bake in preheated oven (190º C) for 12-15 minutes or until parcels are golden and crisp. When all parcels are baked, remove string and tie each with a single strand of chive. Garnish with chopped herbs and serve with herb mayonnaise.
