Super-trendy prawn cocktailFebruary 21, 2007
A favourite at Rice Towers is the classic prawn cocktail. Don’t be fooled by the nay-sayers who tell you it’s passe or unimaginative. Mr Rice likes to make it when he’s in show-off mode. Choose good quality prawns, preferably some meaty tiger prawns, sit it on a bed of little gem lettuce, and serve with slices of crusty baguette.
Prawn Cocktail Recipe
500g meaty prawns (preferably tiger)
4 tbsps mayonnaise
4 tbsps tomato ketchup
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp garlic puree (optional)
1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
salt & black pepper to taste
1 tsp lime juice
lime wedges to serve
Mix all the sauce ingredients together, then serve on a bed of little gem lettuce, with crusty granary bread.
- Use light mayonnaise and reduced sugar ketchup.
- The lime juice lowers the overall GL of the dish, so make sure you squeeze those wedges over your finished dish.
- Use granary bread, not white.
