Prawn Cocktail

Created out of Christmas leftovers!!  However, I do love the retro feel to this starter - I can just imagine eating it followed by a well done steak and then black forest gateau......feeling the 80s' vibe anyone?!?!?

If you wanted to do a simpler version you could just mix some prawns with mayo, ketchup and lemon juice. dollop over some lettuce and serve some brown bread on the side.  This will be really nice but I have to be honest with you and say that the version below does have a certain razzle dazzle feel to it!!

4 tablespoons of mayonaise
2 tablespoons of tomato ketchup
Juice of one lemon
100 grams of cooked prawns
Lettuce, cucumber and tomato (or whatever salad you fancy)
50 grams of smoked salmon
Sprinkle of smoked paprika
Sliced lemon
Brown bread to serve

Mix the mayo, ketchup and lemon juice, taste and alter quantities if required.

Mix the prawns into the sauce.

Arrange the salad on a plate and dollop the prawn mixture in the middle.

Snip over the smoked salmon and sprinkle over some smoked paprika.

Top with another slice of lemon.
