Arrange on serving platter.
Shell prawns, remove back vein, place on platter.
Sprinkle a little red caviar on each oyster, place on platter.
Wash crabs, gently pull away round hard shells at top.
With small knife, gently cut away the grey fibrous tissue.
Rinse again to clean inside of crab.

Crack these lightly with back of cleaver or knife to break through the hard shell.
This makes it easier to eat the crab meat.

Then chop across each piece three times.
This gives six body sections of crab.

Place prepared mussels on platter.
Decorate seafood platter with wedges of lemon, wedges of avocado tossed in french dressing and sprigs of watercress or parsley.
