    A classic recipe in our house! This usually features as our Christmas starter. I like to serve it in a glass bowl.

    1. In a mixing bowl, combine the prawns (reserving 4 for as a garnish), ketchup, cream, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce lemon juice and shredded lettuce.
    2. Place mixture in a glass serving dish, garnish with the prawns and lemon slices. Chill slightly before serving.

    Serving suggestion:

    If you prefer to serve it as individual portions - arrange equal amounts of the shredded lettuce into 4 glasses or bowls. Top with the creamy prawn mixture and garnish with lemon.
