Prawn Cocktail

I love prawns and found that this was such an easy way to cook them and took just minutes to prepare cook and serve.  

I love this recipe it reminds me of my childhood, it's a very 70's dish that I feel deserves to be revived!  Great to have on a hot summers evening for a meal in itself or an entree for a quiet or rowdy dinner party.

500 gm raw prawns (less if its just for you or not)
Cocktail Sauce

Cocktail Sauce 

1 cup egg mayonaise
3 tablespoons tomato sauce
juice of half a lemon
tabasco sauce to taste

Toss your prawns in salt, pepper and olive oil to coat.

Place on a baking sheet and bake in a pre heated 200C oven for 7 minutes or until pink and cooked but not rubbery.

Place all sauce ingredients in a bowl or jar and whisk together.  You can add more tabasco if you wish but remember that it will get more spicy as it sits.  This sauce can be made ahead and left in the fridge.

Shred your lettuce and place in a glass or bowl.

Remove roasted prawns from the oven.

Top the lettuce with prawns.

Drizzle over the cocktail sauce.  Serve.
