This prawn cocktail has come a long way since the 1970's. Fresh coriander, cucumber, spring onions and chilli give the classic entree a Mexican flavour boost.

Used different ingredients. My family really enjoyed this recipe. I also added 1/2 an avocado. The only thing lacking was a little extra heat so next time I'll use 2 chillies instead of just 1. - 14 Jul 2008


Remarkable! I made it for my mom and she loved it thanks! She also admired the recipes that I’ve got from and That I’ve made for her these sites are certainly amazing! - 14 Feb 2012


I think the heat was just fine with this dish. We had some really fresh prawns and it was perfect way to showcase them without overpowering them. - 23 Sep 2008
