Prawn cocktail with lettuce and tomato


Before the meatfest begins, here's something a little lighter to start you off for the Christmas season.


Serves two

50g mayonnaise

50g tomato ketchup

1/4 tsp cayenne

1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp paprika

100g small, cooked and peeled prawns

1 little gem lettuce

2 tomatoes, sliced

2 half-size granary baguettes

Firstly, grab a large bowl and combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, cayenne, saffron, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, paprika and prawns.

Thoroughly mix everything together and season to taste.

Cover with cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut the baguettes open lengthways and spread a bit of butter on the inside.

Lay a few lettuce leaves and tomato slices on the bottom half of each baguette, then spoon in the prawn cocktail mixture over the top and close up.

Merry Christmas and be sure to check back next Sunday for your weekly sandwich fix.
