    The classic dish, loved the world over. This recipe comes from Nigella Lawson, and really is a lot simpler then you might think to prepare.

    1. 1
      Make sure the prawns are drained well of their briny liquid.
    2. 2
      Mix the salad cream, ketchup, lemon juice and Tabasco in a bowl.
    3. 3
      Tip in the prawns and mix to coat them in the Marie-Rose sauce.
    4. 4
      Finally shred the lettuce, and arrange as a bed on six small plates or shallow bowls.
    5. 5
      Divide the prawns in their sauce on the centre of each plate in a kind of pyramid, and then scatter with roughly crushed peppercorns or dust with paprika.
    6. 6
      As long as the prawns were properly thawed and drained before you started immersing them in their famous coral pink sauce, it does not matter if they sit for a good few hours in the fridge before being dolloped out onto their lettuce-lined dishes.

      It was a nice recipe. Made a wonderful lunch. I happen to have the salad cream for another recipe I made recently, so this was perfect. A nice simple dish.
      Thx, Made for PAC 2011
