Recipe: Courgette prawn and grapes
Wash the courgette and squash. Grate them as finely as possible and place in a bowl.
Rinse and dry the chives. Cut them finely with a pair of scissors and mix into the vegetables.
Pour the olive oil into the bowl with the vegetables, drizzle with a few drops of lemon juice, and season very, very lightly with salt. Mix together. ✦ Shell the prawns if necessary and cut them into small pieces. Mix the pieces into the bowl with the other ingredients.
Carefully rinse five large black or green grapes. With a small knife, cut them in two, remove the skin and all the seeds, and then cut each half into two or three pieces.
Place the grated courgette, squash and prawn pieces on a plate or in a bowl. Top with the grape pieces. Sprinkle the grated lemon zest over the plate.
From 18 months
Quarter of a courgette
Quarter of a summer squash
3 sprigs chives
Pinch of zest and a few drops of juice from an unwaxed, washed lemon
1 tsp olive oil
3 pink medium cooked prawns
5 large black or green grapes
If you can't find summer squash, use only courgette. Instead of prawns, you can use 30g of fish fillet or meat, or half of a chopped hard boiled egg.
