Juicy Prawns, Creamy Bliss: Whip Up This Easy Prawn Cocktail in 15 Minutes

Picture this: plump, juicy prawns nestled in a creamy pink sauce, resting on a bed of crisp lettuce. Sounds like a fancy restaurant appetizer, right? Wrong! This prawn cocktail recipe is so simple, even a beginner can whip it up in minutes. Trust me, your taste buds will be doing a happy dance in no time!

Here’s what you’ll need (don’t worry, it’s short and sweet):

  • The stars of the show: 500g cooked prawns (peeled and deveined, of course!)
  • The creamy dream: 200ml mayonnaise (full-fat for maximum yumminess)
  • The tangy twist: 2 tablespoons ketchup (spicy if you dare!)
  • The zesty kick: 1 tablespoon lemon juice (fresh if possible)
  • The crunch factor: 1/2 iceberg lettuce, shredded (think fluffy clouds)
  • The optional extras: Chopped chives, cucumber, avocado slices (because why not?)

Now, let’s get cooking! (It’s more like assembling, really):

  1. Prep your prawns: If they’re not already peeled, get your fingers ready for a little shell-ebration! Just remove the heads, shells, and veins (eww!). Rinse them gently and pat them dry.
  2. Make the magical sauce: Whisk together the mayo, ketchup, and lemon juice. Imagine you’re conducting a delicious symphony! Season with salt and pepper to taste (don’t be shy, let your inner chef shine!).
  3. Time to build your masterpiece: Pile the shredded lettuce in your fanciest glasses or bowls (think Instagram-worthy presentation!). Nestled on top, create a prawn paradise with your juicy friends.
  4. Get saucy! Drizzle that creamy, dreamy sauce over everything, letting it coat the prawns like a warm hug.
  5. Accessorize, if you please: Sprinkle those optional extras ( chives, cucumber, avocado) for a burst of flavor and texture.

Voila! Your prawn cocktail masterpiece is ready to impress. Grab some lemon wedges, some crusty bread for dipping, and prepare to be amazed by the simplicity (and deliciousness) of this recipe.
