Grilled Prawn Cocktail

Here is the recipe for our Grilled Prawn Cocktail from The Crown at Bray. We grill the prawns using Heston Blumenthal's new barbecue range with Everdure.

Ingredients

  • For the Marie Rose sauce:
  • 110g Tomato ketchup
  • 100g Mayonnaise
  • ¼ tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 12 drops Worcestershire sauce
  • 10g Lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5g vanilla paste
  • To finish:
  • 16 large Prawns, peeled and cleaned
  • 160g Marie Rose sauce
  • 1 Avocado
  • 4 Heads little gem lettuce
  • 20g Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • Lemon juice

Method

To make the sauce, combine the tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice in a bowl.
Add the vanilla paste and season with salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
Chargrill the prawns pieces on a preheated bbq making sure to get char marks on all sides and cooked through.
Peel and de-stone the avocado and chop into medium dices.
Shred some little gem lettuce.
Cut the prawns into pieces, reserving a whole one and coat in the cocktail sauce.
Dress salad leaves with olive oil and lemon juice and sea salt.
Build the salads into 4 glass bowls.
Place the reserved whole prawn on top and finish with a little extra sauce.
