About this recipe: We all love a good prawn cocktail! This is your standard, classic prawn cocktail with all the right prawns, in all the right places. This version is quite large and best served as a lunch for 2, or you can make smaller individual prawn cocktails for a more retro 1990s dinner party theme...
