A simple, but delectable twist to the traditional prawn cocktail. Prawns and avocado are tossed in seafood sauce, then served with a wedge of lime and tortilla chips. It's the perfect starter to any dinner party.
I loved the idea of this recipe, but wanted it to come out a bit chunkier and not so much like a dip, so I added another extra avocado, chunked largely and only about 1/4 cup of the cocktail sauce. Also, a little fresh ground pepper. I served in martini glasses with extra shrimp garnishing the side of the glass. It turned out beautifully and tasted incredible. - 03 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great base but a little bland as is. Add lime juice, salt and pepper and you'll get a terrific appetizer. - 13 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I substituted salad shrimp for large shrimp, which made it easier to scoop up. Also with fresh lime juice, and salt and white pepper as suggested. I took it to a party, and it was the first thing gone. - 30 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
