Prawn Cocktail’s success firmly depends on the quality of the prawns you choose. It’s so easy to make at home.
450g fresh peeled prawns, cooked
For the Marie-Rose Sauce
1 tablespoon shallot or onion, very finely chopped
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons tomato ketchup
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Iceberg or cos lettuce to serve
1. Mix the sauce ingredients together gently, adding more mayonnaise or tomato puree/ketchup or lemon juice to taste. Toss with the prawns. Serve in lettuce cups and garnish with parsley and a light dusting of paprika.
– If you use defrosted watery prawns with no flavour then no amount of Marie-Rose Sauce can cover that up. Buy the prawns from a fish shop, they can be frozen as long as they are of good quality to start with.
– Add a splash of Tabasco or hot sauce if you like the sauce to be spicy.
