25 minutes

Ingredients

Prawn cocktail

  • 20 baby gem lettuce leaves
  • 150g of prawns, cooked
  • 1 avocado
  • smoked paprika
  • lemon wedges

Marie rose sauce

  • 2 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp of ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco
  • lemon juice
  • 1 dash of brandy, (optional)
  • salt
  • pepper

Method

1
Place the baby gem leaves in a bowl of iced water whilst you prepare the rest of the canapés. This will crisp up the leaves, giving them more structure to hold the filling, as well as a pleasing crunch
2
Mix the ingredients for the Marie Rose sauce together. Taste and season with lemon juice, salt and pepper
3
Mix the prawns through the sauce to evenly coat them
4
Dice the avocado into 1cm cubes and dress with a little lemon juice. This will lift the flavour and help prevent discolouration
5
Pat dry the baby gem leaves and spoon on some diced avocado followed by a spoonful of prawns
6
Finish with a light dusting of paprika and serve on a plate with some lemon wedges
