1 tsp mustard
12 cooked king prawns

To make the dressing, whisk together 6 tbsp of the olive oil with the vinegar, garlic, mustard and seasonig in a small pan.

Heat gently until thickened slightly, then keep warm.

Carefully peel the prawns, leving the tails intact. Set aside.

While the bacon and prawns are cooking, arrange the spinach and torn oak leaf lettuce on four individual serving plates.
