Description

Drawing inspiration from the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, this prawn cocktail is a must try for seafood lovers. King prawns are elegantly featured in a spicy cocktail sauce made with fresh lemon, orange juice, and tomato juice. The additions of tequila and hot sauce add a unique flavor and kick to the cocktail sauce. Allow time for the prawns to soak up the flavor of the sauce in the refrigerator, ideally 5 to 6 hours, before serving.
