Servings 6


  • 800 g King Prawns
  • 270 g Mayonnaise
  • 150 g Tomato Ketchup
  • 1 Iceberg Lettuce To Serve
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Tomberries To Serve
  • 10 ml Lemon Juice


  • Mix the tomato sauce, mayonnaise, lemon juice and a very small pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl to create a Marie Rose Sauce.
  • Wash the King Prawns, dry them (I used kitchen roll) and add them to the mix. Ensure are fully covered with the Marie Rose Sauce you made.
  • With your serving dishes, decide whether to shred your lettuce, or layer it in your dish. I layered this version.
  • Serve on top of the lettuce, add tomberries and a little seasoning if desired.
