Preheat the oven to 200°C. Roast the pepper until softened and charred. Place into a bowl and cover with Clingfilm and allow it to sweat for 15 minutes.

Remove the skin from the pepper and cut into quarters – reserving the juice.

Place the peeled pepper and garlic into a food processor. Blitz until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again until well combined. Season to taste. Chill in the fridge before serving if possible.

In a mixing bowl, gently combine the prawn tails, papaya, avo and spring onions with the lemon juice and season to taste.
Arrange onto a serving dish and scatter with micro herbs, croutons and seeds.

Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve the red pepper mayo on the side.
