Bloody Mary Prawn Cocktail
A La Jamie Oliver, I have gone for this perhaps more contemporary version with the flavours and spice of a Bloody Mary and adapted it slightly to my taste, but you could adapt it to yours too.
I use Fresh Prawns and Saute them for a minute or so in Oil and then place them in Iced Water to stop them cooking and refresh them. Pre cooked Prawns are all to often overcooked and a bit rubbery and you don't get that sweet fresh flavour.
Then make the sauce, couldn't be easier, Take 3 or 4 tbsp of Mayonnaise add a large tsp of Cayenne Pepper, 2 tbsp of Tomato Ketchup, a generous drizzle of Tabasco Sauce a shake of Worcestershire Sauce a splash of Brandy and the juice of half a lemon.
Stir the mixture together and add the prawns after you have shelled them and place in the fridge for about an Hour.
To serve shred some Iceberg Lettuce , a handful of Cherry Tomatoes cut into halves and spoon in your mixture. Delicious served with some fresh Brown Bread
