Bloody Mary prawn cocktail

    4 hours 20 min

    An exciting twist on the classic prawn cocktail, this makes for an exhilarating and light starter. For an extra special treat, add a shot of vodka to the glass and drink the liquid when the prawns and veg have been eaten! Add hot sauce, like Tabasco, to taste. Also, best to use a seasoned tomato juice cocktail rather than regular tomato juice, otherwise you'll have to add more seasoning to compensate.

    This recipe is awesome. I marinate it in a large ziplock or tupperware leaving out the avacado. Then we take it with us camping. I add the avacado just before serving and add some cilantro. Bring to the picnic table with a ladle, some vodka, a bottle of tabasco, some crackers and a deck of pinochle cards. You can also add a ladle of the of the sauce to an icy beer. Yum! I am very popular on camping trips. Thank you for the great recipe. I have never added jicama, but will do so from here on out.  -  01 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My wife loved it! I added scallions and cilantro. I dont know if it made it better but we sure liked it.  -  02 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I use clamato instead of zing zang to make a bloody caesar shrimp!  -  10 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
