Retro Prawn & Avocado Cocktail

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.

Makes 4



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⠀

Lumpfish roe

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.
