Christmas is almost here!!! I am unbelievably excited for my favourite time of year. And there is nothing more I love to eat at Christmas then this retro classic and absolutely delicious starter for Christmas lunch!
So I know everyone thinks that they can make a plain old prawn cocktail, well you think you do until this! I promise you, this is the best marie rose sauce recipe you will try – no way is it just mayo and ketchup, eugh!
So get your little kitch glassware out to serve and make this for everyone on Christmas day!
Recipe (serves 4)
400g prawns – I use small prawns – it’s the way I like it! But use large prawns if you want or use a mix of each
6 tbsp good quality mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp tomato puree
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
juice of half a lemon
ground black pepper
2 little baby gem lettuce
1 avacado, sliced
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced in wedges
Mix the mayonnaise, tomato puree, celery salt, Worcestershire sauce, lemon and some pepper together. Taste it and adjust the ingredients as you like it – it should be sharp and creamy.
Dress each serving plate with lettuce leaves, a 1/4 of the avocado, tomato wedges, then top with the prawns.
Spoon over the marie rose saucedand sprinkle over some paprika.
Enjoy for your Christmas lunch with your crackers and bucks fizz!
