Default Prawn Cocktail with a kick!

I love prawn cocktail, but was a bit fed up of the 70's retro version. We'd eaten out last week & I could definately taste something "extra" in my dish, it was horseradish sauce. After a few attempts I managed to recreate the dish without losing the delicate flavour of the prawns.

Serves 2
Prep Time 10 mins

* 2 x 180g Packets Jumbo prawns, cooked
* 6 Tbsp Low fat mayonnaise
* 5 Tbsp Tomato sauce
* 2 Tsps Worcestershire Sauce, add more if you like it hot
* 1 Tsp Horseradish sauce
* ˝ Tsp Tabasco sauce
* Squeeze of lemon juice
* 1 Tsp Cayenne pepper
* Freshly ground black pepper


* Mix all the ingredients together (except the prawns) in a large bowl
* Allow to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes
* Stir in the prawns
* Pour over mixed salad of your choice
* Sprinkle cayenne pepper over the top
* Add a wedge of lemon


* Large mixing bowl

Shopping List

* 2 x 180g Packets Jumbo prawns, cooked
* Low fat mayonnaise
* Tomato sauce
* Worcestershire Sauce
* Horseradish sauce
* Tabasco sauce
* Fresh lemon juice
* Cayenne pepper
* Freshly ground black pepper
