Recipe Directions

  1. In a 4-litre pot, place eggs and enough cold water to cover by 2cm. Heat to boiling on high; remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer eggs to a colander. Rinse eggs under cold water until cool enough to handle; peel and cut in quarters. Set aside 12 quarters for garnish.
  2. From lemon, squeeze 3 tablespoons juice and reserve. To same pot of water, add lemon rind and dill stems; heat to boiling on high. Add prawns, reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook for 3 minutes or until prawns just turn opaque throughout. Drain, rinse under cold water until cool and drain again. Discard lemon rind and dill sprigs.
  3. In the same pot, place potatoes and enough cold water to cover. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Heat to boiling on high, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 15 minutes or until just tender; drain well.
  4. While potatoes cook, heat a 3-litre pot of water to boiling on high. Add sugar snap peas and frozen peas. Cook for 2 minutes or until bright green; drain well.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together yoghurt, mustard, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add hot potatoes, onion, celery, prawns, eggs and  half of the chopped dill. Fold gently until well combined.
  6. In another large bowl, whisk vinegar, oil, remaining lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper; add all peas and remaining dill. Toss until well coated.
