The shrimp or prawn cocktail is making a comeback! And with good reason, everyone loves them. This version is a little different to the original British one, having a slight Asian accent.

Although there’s a lot to this recipe, you can cut corners by buying ready made mayonnaise and cooked prawns. But if you’re doing a dinner party, please, please, go the extra steps, it’s well worth it and doesn’t take much longer.

The secret of course is the quality of the seafood, buy the best you can afford and try and select the largest shrimp or prawns you can find. For some reason, larger shrimps are better in flavour.

You can prepare everything the day before and assemble when ready. A great, refreshing dinner party starter, everyone will love. Enjoy my prawn cocktail.
