Print this Recipe
Serves: 6
500g / 1Ib 2oz shelled fresh or frozen broad beans
2 fresh thyme sprigs
225g / 8 oz cooked, peeled prawns
225g / 8 oz Queso Majorero or Gruyere cheese, diced
6 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
salt and pepper

Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the broad beans and 1 thyme sprig, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 7 minutes. Drain well and refresh under cold running water, then drain again.

Unless the broad beans are very young, remove and discard the outer skins. Place the beans in a bowl and add the prawns and cheese.

Chop the remaining thyme sprig. Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and chopped thyme together in a separate bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour the dressing over the bean mixture. Toss lightly and serve.
