Classic Prawn Cocktail Recipe

Celebrate National Prawn Day with Kingfisher Seafoods: A Classic Prawn Cocktail Recipe

National Prawn Day is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with a timeless favourite?


  • 400g Kingfisher Seafoods’ fresh prawns, cooked and chilled
  • 4 tablespoons of top-quality mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce
  • A dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice, plus wedges for serving
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Paprika, for dusting
  • Fresh lettuce leaves, shredded for the base
  • Fresh dill, for garnish


  1. Prepare the Sauce: In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until all the components are well blended, creating your cocktail sauce.
  2. Arrange the Lettuce: Place shredded lettuce at the bottom of four serving glasses. This will form the base for your prawn cocktail.
  3. Assemble the Cocktail: Distribute the cooked prawns, keeping a few aside for the garnish, among the glasses, placing them on top of the lettuce. Dollop the cocktail sauce over the prawns, ensuring each serving is well coated.
  4. Garnish and Serve: Position the reserved prawns on the rim of each glass for a decorative touch. Dust a bit of paprika over the top for colour and a hint of spice. Garnish with a sprig of fresh dill and a wedge of lemon on the side.
  5. Enjoy: Serve straight away and savour the fresh, crisp flavours of your homemade Prawn Cocktail, courtesy of Kingfisher Seafoods’ freshest catch.
