Prawns - How Do You Like Them?

My favourite seafood of choice is Australian Tiger Prawns. I absolutely love prawns either having them cold in a prawn cocktail or cooked and stirred through a hot creamy pasta.
The beauty of a prawn cocktail is you only need a few ingredients - prawns, lettuce and sauce and you have yourself a nice little starter before dinner.

If avocados are in season I'll add one chopped up and squeeze on lemon juice and some freshly cracked pepper. For sauce I'll use seafood sauce and mix in some mayonnaise for added creaminess.

The perfect accompaniment to a prawn cocktail is a glass of chilled sweet rose wine ... it's a bit of a summery dish but honestly I enjoy them all year round.

Check out some of my other prawn recipes here:

  1. I love my prawns covered in bread crumbs and pan fried with the tails cut off ;) i'm super picky! haha

  2. Michelle, I just love prawn cocktail - fabulously retro. Cheers

  3. I'm not a big seafood person but I don't mind a deep fried prawn or two.

    Also, those poo tubes gross me out so batter covers all that up for me.

    My cat eats prawns for dinner a lot, she is very fussy and it's one of the few things she will eat so these days when I see them unbattered they just make me think of cat food!
