Retro Prawn Cocktail

Updated: Nov 22, 2018

I’m entertaining this weekend and wanted to come up with a simple starter for my guests. This retro prawn cocktail is ridiculously easy to construct and is always so brilliantly received. In this recipe I have used the delicious @hunterandgatheruk avocado oil mayonnaise, which was gorgeous and has no hidden nasties in its ingredients. I have served it in champagne saucers, but martini glasses or wine glasses would also work well. ⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4 whole cooked prawns shell on 140g cooked tiger prawns ⠀ 200g small cooked North Atlantic prawns⠀ 4 tablespoons of @hunterandgatheruk avocado oil mayonnaise 5 drops of Tabasco ⠀ 1 teaspoon tomato paste 1 Avocado diced⠀ Lumpfish roe Lemon wedges ⠀ 1 bag mixed leaves⠀ ⠀ METHOD ⠀
