Ep 1: Seventies Night Recipe: Prawn Cocktail
STARTER -Prawn Cocktail - Serves
1 ripe avocado
For the Marie Rose Sauce:
Approx 200g fresh mayonnaise
2-3 tbsp tomato ketchup
Pinch cayenne pepper
Dash Tabasco, to taste
Dash Worcestershire sauce, to taste
Splash of brandy, to taste
1/2 iceberg lettuce
Approx 250g of cooked small peeled prawns
Lemon wedges, to garnish
Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and carefully score each half using a small knife to create a criss-cross pattern. Squeeze each half generously with lemon juice to prevent it from dis-colouring.
To make the marie rose sauce mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, cayenne pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice together in a large bowl. Season to taste with Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, and a splash of brandy. Stir to combine.
Place a spoonful of marie rose sauce into the bottom of 4 serving glasses. Shred the lettuce and divide equally among the glasses. Scrape out the flesh from the avocado using a spoon and scatter over the lettuce. Spoon another layer of sauce on top.
Arrange the prawns on top and finish with a final spoonful of sauce (reserving any remaining sauce for future use). Sprinkle with a touch of cayenne pepper and garnish with a lemon wedge in each glass to serve.
