In a blender, place the flesh of the avocado, milk, olive oil and seasoning. Blend till smooth and put puree into a piping bag. Reserve in a refrigerator.
To make the mini cornbread muffins. Preheat oven to 175C. Grease a mini muffin pan with oil or butter. Place the polenta, flour, sugar and salt in a bowl and stir well. In an electric mixing bowl, whisk the melted butter, eggs, milk and creamed corn. Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl, combining well. Fill the muffin pan with the mix, just below the lip and bake in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, ensuring to not overcook the muffins. Remove to a wire rack and let cool.
When ready to assemble, heat bbq to a medium to high heat. Quickly sauté the prawns, turning once to finish. Pipe some avocado puree on to the cornbread and place a juicy prawn on top to crown. Easy and delicious!
