3 slices white bread
1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
1/2 cup dill sprigs

Lime mayonnaise

3/4 cup whole-egg mayonnaise
1 lime, rind finely grated, juiced

Using a sharp knife, cut prawns along back from top to tail (do not cut all the way through). Remove vein and open prawns flat. Place prawns and oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Turn prawns to coat.

Place bread, parsley, dill and oregano in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Transfer to a large plate. Coat prawns, 1 at a time, in herb crumbs, pressing on with your fingers. Place on a tray lined with baking paper.

Make lime mayonnaise: Place mayonnaise, lime rind, 1 tablespoon lime juice, garlic and worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

Preheat a barbecue plate on medium heat. Spray prawns with oil. Barbecue prawns for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until golden and crisp. Serve with lime mayonnaise, rocket salad and lime wedges.
