I do love a good prawn cocktail it’s one of life’s simple pleasures. My version takes under 10 minutes to make and can easily be prepped in advance for a simple Christmas Day starter. You can use whichever prawns you like, but I like the mix of tiger and small prawns.
4 whole cooked prawns shell on
140g cooked tiger prawns ⠀
200g small cooked North Atlantic prawns⠀
4 tablespoons of mayonnaise
5 drops of Tabasco ⠀
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1 Avocado diced⠀
Lemon wedges ⠀
1 bag mixed leaves⠀
Mix the mayonnaise, Tabasco and tomato paste in a bowl. Add the prawns and avocado saving some for decoration. ⠀
Put a small amount of leaves in the bottom of a glass, followed by the prawn cocktail mix. Top with the roe and garnish with prawns and a lemon wedge.
