Back in Time Prawn Cocktail

Lena Oxton (call sign: “Tracer”) was the youngest person ever inducted into Overwatch’s experimental flight program. Known for her fearless piloting skills, she was handpicked to test the prototype of a teleporting fighter, the Slipstream. But during its first flight, the aircraft’s teleportation matrix malfunctioned, and it disappeared. Lena was presumed dead.

She reappeared months later, but her ordeal had greatly changed her: her molecules had been desynchronized from the flow of time. Suffering from “chronal disassociation,” she was a living ghost, disappearing for hours and days at a time. Even for the brief moments she was present, she was unable to maintain a physical form.

Overwatch’s doctors and scientists were stumped, and Tracer’s case seemed hopeless until a scientist named Winston designed the chronal accelerator, a device capable of keeping Tracer anchored in the present. In addition, it gave Tracer the ability to control her own time, allowing her to speed it up and slow it down at will. With her newfound skills, she became one of Overwatch’s most effective agents.

Ingredients

1-2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
2-3 drops Tabasco
1 tsp Brandy
2 Spring Onions (finely sliced)
2 Gem Lettuces (shredded)
1 Yellow Bell Pepper (diced)
1 Avocado (diced)
1 Lemon (cut into wedges)
50ml Lemon Juice
200g King Prawns
0.5 tsp Cayenne Pepper

For the Mayonnaise
1 Egg Yolk
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
150ml Sunflower Oil
50ml Lemon Juice
75ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For a character with time based lore, I wanted to make a meal that was more popular in the past and this appetiser was the most popular hors d’œuvre in Great Britain, as well as in the United States, from the 1960s to the late 1980s.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
To make the mayonnaise, beat together egg yolk and mustard. Slowly whisk in the sunflower oil. Once the mixture is thick stir in the lemon juice. Drip in the olive oil whilst you keep whisking, adding extra lemon juice if necessary.
Step 2
Mix the ketchup, Tabasco, brandy and most of the spring onions into the mayonnaise.
Step 3
Toss together the lettuce, bell pepper and avocado with the lemon juice, then divide between 4 sundae glasses.
Step 4
Top each with the prawns, then drizzle over the sauce. Sprinkle over a little cayenne pepper and the reserved spring onions, then garnish with a lemon wedge.
