Recipe tips

To make a prawn cocktail, use 160g cooked prawns, 2 shredded Little Gems, then drizzle over the marie rose sauce and scatter with chopped chives. (The sauce recipe above can easily be halved to make six prawn cocktails.)
If you like, add a small splash of brandy or dry sherry to the sauce.
