Prawn cocktails with chilli, coriander and lime mayonnaise

all details

The prawn cocktail is served with a zesty chilli, coriander and lime mayonnaise. I find these flavours complement the prawns beautifully. Instead of the baby cos, any crisp lettuce could be used, such as iceberg lettuce, which would give a fun retro touch. Keep the lettuce in the fridge until the last minute so that it is chilled and crisp.
