WHAT a amazing recipe! OH my. My DH took this to lunch yesterday (at work) and people were drooling all over it. (thankfully he was able to wipe the drool away) I followed this exactly, and the taste was so comforting, and good for the soul. Love, love, love the sauce! Added some green onion bits on the salad overall and used fresh corn kernels as suggested. Made for Aussie Swap 2012
Perfect recipe -- easy-to-make, colourful, delicious and classy. I had 12 medium-size prawns, so made half a batch of sauce, which was plenty. Used Best Ever Homemade Mayonnaise for the sauce base and couldn't resist adding a teaspoon of horseradish cream. Used fresh, raw corn kernels, which gave a lovely crunch. Also cut a small tomato in wedges and alternated the slices with the prawns. Hubby was so pleased he figured it was still his birthday, but that was yesterday. Thanks for posting.
Loved this. Different from the sauce used here in the USA. I liked it better. The corn really added a great complimentary flavor to the shrimp. Made for Aus/NZ swap.
This is a great sauce. I don't usually use a mayo base on a shrimp cocktail, so it was a nice change for us. The corn highlights the sweetness of the prawns and adds a nice texture.
i found it better with prawns & no pepper but apart from that it was top notch it was so simple to make even my partner could make it i put spring onions in it aswell and its tastes even better.
Dh couldn't stop complimenting the sauce, Peter, and I agree. I sauteed the prawns in garlic oil and substituted 2T of the mayo with horseradish. The fresh corn kernels are an inspired addition.
When we would go to the Rosehill Leagues Club in Sydney I always got this as a starter. Delicious. I just wish I could get prawns here in LA like we used to get in Sydney.
