Spicy prawn cocktail

    20 min

    This is not your normal prawn cocktail! This recipe calls for lots of fresh coriander, cucumber, spring onions and chilli which gives the classic a Mexican flavour boost. It's a great colourful starter for a summer dinner party.

    Used different ingredients. My family really enjoyed this recipe. I also added 1/2 an avocado. The only thing lacking was a little extra heat so next time I'll use 2 chillies instead of just 1.  -  14 Jul 2008
