  2. In a medium bowl, mix the remaining 1/4 tsp. lime juice with the mayonnaise, coriander seeds, lime zest, cayenne, a generous pinch of salt, and a pinch of pepper. Toss the prawns with the mayonnaise and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Carefully drain the hearts of palm and pat dry with paper towels. Top each radish coin with a palm coin of similar size, two prawns, and a coriander leaf.
