    600g Cooked Prawns

    1 head of Iceberg Lettuce

    2 Lemons

    ½ jar of Mayonnaise

    5 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

    5 tsp Tabasco Sauce

    3 tbsp Ketchup

    20ml Brandy

    4 pinches Paprika


    Lay the prawns out on some kitchen paper. Add more kitchen roll on top and gently squeeze the prawns to drain them of any excess water.

    Slice up the iceberg lettuce roughly, not too thinly.

    For the sauce

    Combine the mayonnaise, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, brandy and ketchup together.

    To serve 

    You will need 4 serving glasses or bowls. Add a spoonful of sauce to the bottom of your glass. Divide the lettuce between the 4 glasses. Top with the prawns (divided equally). Now add a spoonful of sauce and finish with a pinch of paprika. Serve with a lemon wedge each.
