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.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams prawns (king size, peeled)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 150 milliliters orange juice
  • 150 milliliters tomato juice
  • 100 milliliters tequila (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon powdered garlic
  • 1/2 onion (finely chopped)
  • 10 grams coriander (chopped)
  • salt
  • ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Bring to a boil 1 liter or water with a pinch of salt.
  2. Add the prawns. Turn of the heat and leave to rest for 5 minutes, or until cooked and slightly crunchy. Don’t overcook.
  3. Place the prawns in a large bowl. Add the juices, tequila and remaining ingredients.
  4. Stir well and leave in the refrigerator for 5–6 hours.
  5. Before serving, rub the rim of a large glass with 1/2 a lemon, dip into a plate of salt, or alternatively, ground chili powder.

This is not your usual shrimp cocktail. The shrimp are huge in comparison with the usual tiny ones. The tequila adds a kick to the flavor that tastes amazing. This is a must try dish for seafood lovers.
