For the salad
1 fennel bulb, trimmed, halved and finely sliced
1 avocado, quartered, peeled and sliced
200g cooked king prawn
3 spring onions, sliced

Make the dressing by mixing the oil and citrus juices together in a small bowl with some salt and pepper, then set aside.

In a bowl, toss all the other ingredients, except the rocket, together with the orange segments and half of the dressing.

Scatter the rocket leaves into 4 Martini glasses or small bowls, pile the salad into the centre, then drizzle with the remaining dressing just before serving.
