This prawn cocktail recipe is so simple, it make a great easy recipe for kids to make themselves from start to finish!
We’re enjoying the summer holidays at the moment, so things have been a little quiet here on the blog recently, but today I’m sharing a really simple recipe that Small Child has made for us several times now. This easy prawn cocktail recipe makes a quick and easy summer meal, either served on lettuce leaves as a yummy starter or snack, or as a healthy topper for baked potatoes – one of our favourite family meals at the moment!
This recipe is part of my ‘Easy Recipes for Kids‘ series, so includes a free child friendly recipe sheet at the end of the post for you to download and print – maybe your own ‘small child’ might like to give it a try?
Easy Prawn Cocktail
- 75g light mayonaise
- 20g ketchup
- dash Worcestershire sauce
- 200g cooked prawns
- sprinkle paprika
- lemon slices
Measure out the mayonnaise, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and mix them together in a bowl.
Add the prawns and mix until completely coated, then cover and pop in the fridge until ready to serve.
To serve, place spoonfuls of the prawn cocktail mixture onto small lettuce leaves or use as a healthy baked potato topping.
Sprinkle over a little paprika and serve with fresh lemon slices on the side.
