Simple (really simple) prawn cocktail

Perfect for warm summer nights (we do actually have some) is prawn cocktail!

Traditionally a starter in an ice cream glass, this works equally well as a main meal. Plus, it’s pretty healthy, doesn’t have to cost too much and takes no cooking at all! There’s no dressing in the image as that was on the side – I’ve no idea why I did that.

I’ve seem lots of recipes for thousand island sauce, some with brandy, tobacco – even paprika! In order to keep this recipe as simple as possible, this dressing is just one part ketchup to two parts mayo – but you can be as fancy with your sauce as you like!


  • Lettuce (I like romaine but iceberg will be fine!)
  • Tomatoes – cherry, plum, heritage – whatever you fancy!
  • Spring onion
  • Cress
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Mayonnaise
  • 200g fresh cooked sustainable prawns


  • On a board large serving dish, put on a good layer of the lettuce
  • Top the lettuce with as many tomatoes, cucumber and spring onion pieces as you fancy
  • Next dot around the avocado
  • Make a little well in the middle and place your prawns in there before topping with the dressing
  • Snip over the cress
