Shrimp Cocktails – made the old school way.

新西兰烹饪,配有照片的食谱教程

We made these for years both as an appetizer for meals and they were also a favorite for the kids to make on getting home from school. These are the easiest Shrimp Cocktails to make and once you get the sauce right you can’t go wrong.

For 4 Shrimp cocktails you will need:

INGREDIENTS:
1 tomato,
1 carrot,
1/3 of a lettuce,
2 tbsp capers,
2 tbsp Mayonnaise,
A splash or two of Tabasco sauce,
300g Shrimps (or 2 cans),

A few chopped spring onion for presentation.

METHOD:
Start with your head of lettuce.
We like to remove the core of the lettuce to keep them remaining nice and fresh.
To do this slam the lettuce stem down on a chopping board, not too hard just enough to give the core a good knock.
Next use your fingers to break the remaining outside leaves around the core and the core will just pull straight out.
This leaves you with a beautifully cored lettuce.

The Shrimp:

You can use fresh shrimp, frozen shrimps or canned shrimps.
Listed above in order of preference.
There is not much of a price difference, but when you purchase your shrimp keep in mind how long it will be before you intend to eat them.

For any shrimp make sure they are drained and strained.
Don’t rinse them too much as you want to preserve the flavor.
