Ingredients

For the marie rose sauce

  • 100g mayonnaise
  • 25g tomato ketchup
  • Tabasco sauce

Method

  • STEP 1

    To make the Marie Rose sauce, blend the mayonnaise with the ketchup and a couple of shakes of Tabasco in a bowl. Trim the bases of the lettuce hearts, discard the outer leaves and separate the leaves – they need to be about 10cm long and you want about 24 in total. Reserve the tiny hearts for another salad.

  • STEP 2

    Wash the prawns and pat dry between double layers of kitchen paper. Toss in a bowl with the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley and a little seasoning.

  • STEP 3

    Lay the leaves out on serving plates, cup-side up. Drop several prawns into each. Dollop ½ tsp sauce on top, then scatter over some mustard and cress. These can be prepared 1 hr in advance, in which case cover with cling film and set aside in a cool place.
