  1. Separate the baby gem leaves and stack 2-3 on each plate. Divide the prawns between plates and place them next to the lettuce.
  2. Top the baby gem with chopped celery and the white part of the spring onions.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the crème fraîche with 1 teaspoon each of lemon zest and juice, the garlic and paprika. Season and mix again.
  4. Just before serving, drizzle the sauce over the prawns or serve it in a small dipping bowl on each plate. Sprinkle a little more paprika and the chopped green part of the onion over the prawns. Serve with the lemon wedges.
