Seafood Cocktail Sauce Recipe

My husband David and myself love cruising and have recently returned home from one. We flew over to Melbourne and cruised back around the bottom half of Australia to Perth on the Sun Princess. What a truly awesome ship and definitely one of our favourite liners to cruise on. Everyone from the crew to the amenities onboard and of course, the wonderful food. David developed a love of the prawn cocktails they served and so I am going to share my own seafood cocktail sauce recipe that you can make for when you want to serve them at your dinner parties. Prawn cocktails seem to come and go in fashion and whenever you have one, you wonder why they are not always in vogue as they are so easy to make and always taste great.
This recipe was one my mum used to make many years ago and I haven't change a thing about it as I think it is a great one.


1 dessertspoon fresh cream
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon vinegar
3 - 4 tablespoons tomato sauce (ketchup)
2 - 3 tablespoons worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon grated onion (optional)
few drops tabasco sauce


Mix all ingredients together in a jug or small bowl.
Put some lettuce leaves in small glass bowls. Lay a row of fresh medium size prawns over then pour enough sauce over to just cover prawns. Pipe a small dash of whipped cream on top of sauce and garnish with a sprig of parsley and a small wedge of lemon on the side.
You can use a combination of shell fish if prefered. Lobster or scampi also are great.
