Prawn Cocktail

Prawn cocktail is another classic salad that is really easy to throw together. It’s one you don’t see so often anymore which is such a shame as when made properly it is a great salad or starter. You can use the really small prawns which are called Boston prawns or a bigger prawn like a king prawn, which is what I used. The dressing, Marie Rose sauce, is so easy to make. Add 2 tsp of brandy or cognac to take it to a whole new level

Ingredients

4 – 6 cooked king prawns per portion
½ head of crispy iceberg lettuce
Pinch of cayenne pepper to garnish
Zest of 1 lime (optional)
MARIE ROSE SAUCE (cocktail sauce)
4 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. tomato ketchup
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp lemon or lime juice

Instructions

1
Peel the prawns if not already peeled. I am presuming you are using cooked prawns. If they are raw, poach them in boiling water for 2 minutes after removing the shells. Add a pinch of salt to the water before cooking. Cool under running cold water before using or allow to cool naturally.
2
Shred the lettuce as thinly as you possibly can.
3
Place a dollop of Marie Rose in the bottom of a glass.
4
Top with shredded iceberg lettuce leaving about ¼ at the top of the glass.
5
Place the prawns on top then top with Marie Rose.
6
Sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper and lime zest and serve.
7
MARIE ROSE SAUCE (cocktail sauce) Also known as cocktail sauce, this is so simple to make. You can even make it using nothing more than 3 parts mayo to 1part ketchup if you don’t have the rest of the ingredients.
8
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, taste and serve if happy. Add 2 tsp of brandy or cognac to make it extra special.
