Method

  1. Step 1

    In a food processor, blend the mayonnaise, sour cream, basil, lemon zest, 2 tbs lemon juice and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve ½ cup basil mayonnaise in a small bowl for serving.
  2. Step 2

    Add the prawns and breadcrumbs to the remaining basil mayonnaise in the food processor. Pulse about 15-20 times or until the mixture is combined and the prawns are coarsely chopped.
  3. Step 3

    Line a baking tray with baking paper. Form the mixture into four 1.5cm-thick patties that are the width of the buns. Place on the tray and refrigerate for 30 mins or until chilled.
  4. Step 4

    Prepare a barbecue flat plate for medium heat. Brush the prawn patties with oil and sprinkle lightly with salt. Cook the patties for 2½-3 mins each side or until crisp on outside and cooked through.
  5. Step 5

    Meanwhile, butter cut sides of buns. Cook buttered sides on barbecue for 1-2 mins or until toasted.
  6. Step 6

    Top the bun bases with lettuce and patties. Place tomato on the patties. Top with reserved basil mayonnaise, avocado, onion and bun tops.
