Simple Prawn Cocktail (4 ingredients)

At our beach-themed party, we served mainly seafood (Check out our pufferfish fruit platter!). One of our favourite is individual prawn cocktail.

We like how easy it is to make this dish. There’s really no skills involve; its a matter of mixing sauces, boiling prawns and assembling them on a small dish!

  • Use a bottle of thousand island sauce instead of making a cocktail mixture.
  • You can also replace affordable limes with lemon. The latter has less seeds.
  • You can cook the prawns and make the sauce a night before and keep them refrigerated.
