It wouldn't be Christmas without a Prawn Cocktail
Who doesn't love a prawn cocktail? Sweet juicy prawns coated in a tangy Marie Rose sauce with crisp lettuce and sharp lemon, my mouth is watering just writing about it!
We have taken a look at the recipes on the web and come up with our top three to share with you, so in no particular order prawn cocktail heaven here we come:
Jamie Oliver's Seafood Cocktail
Jamie has his own twist on the classic prawn cocktail, with the addition of white crab meat, which does sound interesting. The sauce has a Tabasco kick and a sprinkle of paprika to top it off. The good thing about this, if cooking for four, then you could make Christmas crab cakes with the remaining crab meat and the left over roast potatoes, something different to turkey curry to have on boxing day.
Mary Berry's Prawn Cocktail
Lovely Mary Berry keeps her prawn cocktail simple and elegant but with the really clever twist of adding creamed horseradish to the sauce. She suggests you use two types of prawns, the juicy peeled prawns and some shell on larger prawns, like our medium crevettes, or you could pan fry some tiger prawns and add those instead.
Tom Kitchin's Prawn Cocktail
Tom's prawn cocktail, isn't technically a prawn cocktail as he uses langoustine... a really special prawn cocktail! If you order our langoustines then they come ready cooked, so all you need to do is peel them, making the recipe that little bit quicker. The rest of the recipe is quite traditional, with a spicy take on the Marie Rose sauce like Jamie, but wow, what a show stopper.
