This Seventies must-have menu item is still incredibly popular. There’s something about the sauce that makes even the worst frozen prawns taste acceptable. But if you take it up a few notches by using fresh prawns, perhaps adding some langoustines and/or fresh crab meat, spicing up the sauce a little, and adding some finely diced cucumber, you can create a truly luxury seafood cocktail. Here’s the basic recipe - add in extra seafood as you like.
