Directions

15 min.
1. Step

In a medium mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise and ketchup first. My experience taught me that mixing these two ingredients first ensures the perfect base for the cocktail sauce. You're looking for a pinkish hue, the quintessential color of a classic prawn cocktail sauce.

2. Step

Now, add the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, Tabasco sauce, salt, and pepper to the mix. Stir gently until all the ingredients are fully combined. It is imperative to incorporate these ingredients gradually as adding them all too quickly can make the sauce too tangy or too spicy.

3. Step

Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary. The beauty of this sauce lies in its balance of flavors so don't hesitate in adjusting according to your preference.

4. Step

You can serve this immediately, but I found that chilling the sauce for about 30 minutes before serving allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.

5. Step

Pair this sauce with cooked, chilled prawns on a bed of lettuce for the classic application, or use it as a dip with any seafood of your choice.
