Mad Monday (first Monday of the month) is when I give you a really quick recipe that you can whip up and have on the table literally in minutes of walking in the door after a busy day!
Pour yourself a glass of wine – grab a friend for some great company and enjoy a lazy Mad Monday dinner! Peel prawns and cook in your thermomix for 4 minutes and serve with whatever salad you have on hand with some yummy seafood or tartare sauce.
It’s always annoyed me having to buy a whole jar of Tartare sauce and only using half of it and then months down the track the jar ends up in the bin when I’m cleaning out the fridge! So combining the ingredients of a few recipes and having a ‘play’ to get the taste to my liking, I eventually came up with being happy with this recipe. I like it too, because I can make it for a fraction of the cost of a jar and if I want I can halve the ingredients if I only want a small amount.

The seafood sauce I made simply came about from not having any in my fridge!! So I jumped on the internet and many sites recommended a very basic recipe of mixing mayo and tomato sauce and a few drops of tabasco! Too easy! Especially with a thermomix and having homemade mayo and homemade tomato sauce – not a preservative or additive in sight!! 🙂
