British Food Fortnight Recipe 4 - Classic Prawn Cocktail Salad

You can't get much more British than a prawn cocktail! This 1970s favourite is a real classic and is just as tasty today as it was 40 years ago. Thank you to for allowing us to share this recipe.

Classic Prawn Cocktail Salad

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2
½ Iceberg Lettuce, shredded (250g)
2 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tbsp tomato ketchup (50g)
1 tbsp low fat mayonnaise (50g)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2-3 dashes Tabasco sauce to taste
200g cooked peeled prawns, defrosted if frozen
Pinch of smoked paprika
What to do
Toss the iceberg and parsley together and place in the base of 2 glass serving dishes. Dry the prawns on a few sheets of kitchen roll. Mix together the ketchup, mayonnaise,
Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces then stir in the prawns. Spoon the prawn mixture into the serving dishes and top with the remaining lettuce. Finish with a sprinkle with smoked paprika. Serve immediately.

Cook Tips

Try replacing the iceberg with shredded round lettuce and use tiger prawns with a little harissa paste for extra spice. Serve in 4 wine glasses for the classic 1970’s starter.
