Most people like prawn cocktail. These canapes look elegant, pretty, colourful and are incredibly easy to make. You only need two prawns per person so it won’t break the bank either.
TIP Use the small North Atlantic prawns which are plump and sweet. Resist using frozen prawns. Like most first dates, they usually disappoint.
20 North Atlantic prawns
4 tbs mayonnaise
1 tsp tomato ketchup
juice of half a lemon
a few drops of tobasco
a few drops of Worcestershire sauce
cayenne for dusting
a few snipped chives to decorate
five cos lettuce leaves, cut in half
10 shot glasses
Place the lettuce leaf gently into the shot glass.
Simply mix all the ingredients together, spoon in the sauce, pput 2 prawns on top of the lettuce and top with cayenne and the chives.
