Although Prawn Cocktail is a very international cold dish made with boiled and peeled prawns it is also very popular in Spain. It is a very light and refreshing dish served as an appetizer especially in summer.
Normally Prawn Cocktail is presented in a glass cup with a small simple salad, made with lettuce and rosemary sauce, a mixture of mayonnaise, ketchup, lemon and with other ingredients such as sprinkled paprika for decoration. SO here I am showing my particular way of making Prawn Cocktail. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
