A fairly traditional Australian prawn cocktail recipe with the addition of some tomato and corn to garnish. It always tastes best if you use prawns just freshly cooked but then cooled in the fridge a while.
This recipe actually originated with Chef Tommy Cvitanovich,at Drago's in new Orleans. It is a quick, easy and really cool way to cook and really enjoy fresh Oysters! Especially good on cold Autumn evenings, served with fresh shrimp and catfish for dinner at camp after a hard days hunting
A classic Australian dish which will be found in many Australian restaurants, and which is a brilliant way to enjoy oysters. I checked out a few sources before posting this recipe, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour, but primarily Huey (Australian chef Iain Hewitson) and the Australian publication by Reader's Digest of a book jam-packed with traditional Australian recipes: 'Family Recipe Scrapbook: tried and trusted recipes for today's cooks'. The recipe I've posted here is taken primarily from the Reader's Digest publication, but I've included details of a variation (from Huey) in the notes. By the way, if you're watching your salt intake and you're concerned about the unspecified amount of rock salt, don't be: you won't be eating it! Not in this recipe! But DO buy your oysters from someone or somewhere you can trust, so that you KNOW they are fresh.
I saw this wonderful and easy to make recipe on a TV commercial for a garlic creamy sauce, but I replaced that sauce for Philadelphia cream cheese with herbs and turned awesome. Soft, and delicate flavors mixed together. I hope you like it as much as we have :)
Just came up with this for something different and made a good entree while working out what to cook as the main course. Came out really well I thought, it is on the spicy side so some might like to use half the amount of jalapeno peppers.
This is a recipe I just came up with because I fancied something along these lines and couldn't find any existing recipes that appealed. It came out well and I think the lemon in the sauce gives a good contrast to the richness of salmon.
