Bloody Mary Prawn Cocktail: Recipe

sustainable seafood recipe prawn cocktail

We love a prawn cocktail and if you’re on this recipe we’re sure you do too. This is a great starter or light (cheeky) lunch and we’ve put our Gill’s twist on this classic adding mango vodka.

Ingredients (serves 2):

Timings: 10 minutes

For the sauce:

  • 4 tbsp good mayonnaise (if you’re feeling ambitious make your own)
  • 1/2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco, to taste
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • 2 tsps Mango vodka (we added a little extra… it was the weekend)

For the salad

  • 200g prawns (we suggest king and raw if you can find them)
  • 1 little gem lettuces
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cucumber
  • 2 sticks of celery



  1. Put the mayonnaise in a bowl and whisk to loosen, then add the other ingredients and taste, adjust by adding more to your liking (we won’t judge the extra vodka).
  2. Place a celery stick upright in each of the glasses. Now prop them up like a drunk in a bar with the lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber and top with all the prawns apart from one if you want to do step 3, if not get a good dollop of sauce on top and you’re ready to go.
  3. If you’re feeling fancy adorn your glass by placing a prawn on the edge and adding a slice of lemon. Drizzle over the sauce and enjoy your tasty cocktail.
