CHRISTMAS SNACKS 1 OF 3: PRAWN AND AVO RITZ WITH SPICY MARIE ROSE SAUCE

Prep 10 mins
Serves As many as desired

The party season is here! Pop the corks and serve up yummy snacks that involve next to no cooking. A little bit of imagination and a lot of our spice is all you need. Here is the first easy-peasy idea to get you started.

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • store-bought mayonnaise
  • store-bought tomato sauce
  • lemon juice
  • Cape Herb & Spice Tastebud SPICY blend
  • cooked, peeled prawns or shrimps
  • gem lettuce leaves
  • avocado, drizzled with lemon juice to prevent discolouration

- METHOD -

To make the Marie Rose sauce, mix mayo and tomato sauce – the ratio depends on your preference – we like 60% mayo and 40% tomato sauce. Then, add lemon juice and Cape Herb & SpiceTastebud SPICY  to taste – you decide how tart and spicy you like it! Stir to combine.

Spoon the cooked prawns into small glasses, spoon over Marie Rose sauce, add plenty of avo and a baby gem lettuce leaf. Top with micro herbs or edible flowers for a touch of Christmas pretty.
